Glenn Malkin

Glenn Malkin is an award-winning bookbinder working with traditional methods, materials and techniques to create beautiful and unique design bindings.

Design bindings are contemporary pieces of unique bookbinding art which reflect and link to the pages within. They use the very finest materials and are entirely hand crafted. Sometimes taking months to complete, each binding will incorporate a range of features, usually including hand sewn silk end bands, fine leather decorative coverings, hand sewn text blocks with decorated edges and a tailor-made presentation box. Design Bindings can of course vary in price significantly depending on the complexity of the design and the materials used, but typically fall in the £750 to £2,000 range.

Glenn has won several awards for his design bindings in national and international competitions and has books in collections in the UK, USA, Europe and Asia. Please contact Glenn directly to discuss possible commissions. Further examples of his work can be found at

Glenn also applies his skills to the repair and rebinding of old books and Bibles, as well as creating individual special occasion and gift books to suit most budgets.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 1 day we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
