Hey there, it's Ben.
Over the last 10 years I have been specialising in boxmaking. I'm talking about boxmaking for books, and specifically bibliophile books (first editions, rare editions old and new). These are fine (read fancy) boxes whose purpose isn't simply to protect but also to enhance precious items.

I discovered that there is a growing tendency to refrain from having books re-bound. Because of the concern for the loss of information and authenticity, the trend seems to be to keep the original intact as much as possible. However, that doesn't mean that book collectors have lost their taste for fancy packaging. As a result there is today a large demand for fine enclosures, and not enough bookbinders to make them to the required standard.

I developed my own system for boxmaking, a system which aims at producing the highest possible quality, while at the same time being rational, efficient and predictable. This is what I want to teach you here. My system has the added benefit that you'll be able to work for any client in the world.

Online videos and more will follow later... stay tuned!
