About us

We are seasoned, experienced and highly trained bookmakers, with over 20 years experience inherited from several generations. We have acquired highly sophisticated bookbinding skills enriched with other handmade crafts. Behind "alexlibris", the craftsmanship is carried forward by a father and son, who have dedicated themselves to mastering the art of bookmaking.

Many hours are spent on methods, and new techniques are carefully considered before starting to create extraordinary books. All commissions are carefully discussed and considered with each client. With a heritage that has earned a name among some of the most highly skilled bookmakers in the world, a deep admiration for this craft and expertise in working with leather is honed. These works of art adorn the shelves of thousands of people around the globe who appreciate the once forgotten art. In the future, there are plans to train and educate the next generation in this wonderful sphere of creation.

The brand name "alexlibris" was established in 2012, this parallels with the launch of our Etsy shop and the first introduction of our art to the worldwide public.
