The essential tools for any hobbyist bookbinder or any book artist who needs his tools always on hand!

I am a bookbinder myself, and I always carry with me a similar kit with my essential tools. My students liked the idea of keeping everything together in a handy elegant case, so they asked for their own kits to carry along. These kits were a hit, and people were asking for more as presents for their crafty friends. So, I compiled four unique kits, all including the essential tools.

The difference between them is the quality of the tools included. Bookbinding does not need to be an expensive hobby. Our toolkit in every craft reflects our level of expertise and our love for quality tools.

📌 𝐊𝐢𝐭 𝟏 has been compiled for the beginner artist and the student. It includes everything you will need at a very good price. The kit includes:
  • a wooden folder
  • a piercer
  • a pack of 4 standard long steel bookbinding needles
  • 5 meters of specialized Crawford's Irish waxed linen thread in white
  • 30ml of bookbinding Glue
  • a foam brush for applying the glue
  • a mechanical pencil with an eraser
  • a 9mm blade plastic paper cutter
  • a handmade pyrographic PU leather case of 20.50 x 11 cm in brown or black

📌 𝐊𝐢𝐭 𝟐 This kit includes all the above, but it has a bookbinder's size bone folder instead of a wooden one, a reusable silicone glue brush instead of a foam one, a larger paper cutter, a set of ten colors of headbands (20 cm each).

More specifically in kit 2, you will find
  • a large bone folder
  • a piercer
  • a pack of 4 standard long steel bookbinding needles
  • 5 meters of specialized Crawford's Irish waxed linen thread in white
  • 30ml of bookbinding Glue
  • a silicone spreader tool for spreading the glue
  • a mechanical pencil with eraser
  • an 18mm blade plastic paper cutter
  • 10 x 20cm headbands in different colors (total of 2 m)
  • a handmade pyrographic PU leather case of 20.50 x 11 cm in brown or black

📌 𝐊𝐢𝐭 𝟑 This kit is for the bookbinder who loves his tools and accepts only the best. It has everything Kit 2 has, but the simple bone folder is substituted by a Teflon folder. Teflon Folders are a tool for life, as they only get smoother and shinier with age and use. They are made from a strong, non-contaminating, and non-stick material, which means that adhesives, inks, and paints will not stick to them. It is really difficult to tear even the most delicate paper with a Teflon folder, while it produces crisp and accurate creases. Also, it includes a larger can of glue, a metal paper cutter instead of a plastic one, and a stipple brush instead of a silicone spreader.

More specifically in kit 3 you will find:
  • a Teflon folder
  • a piercer
  • a pack of four standard long steel bookbinding needles
  • Five meters of specialized Crawford's Irish waxed linen thread in white
  • 50ml of bookbinding Glue
  • a stipple brush for spreading the glue
  • 10 x 20cm headbands in different colors (total of 2 m)
  • a mechanical pencil with an eraser
  • a metallic paper cutter with a 9mm blade
  • a handmade pyrographic PU leather case of 20.5 x 11 cm in brown or black
📌 𝐊𝐢𝐭 𝟒 This is a variation of kit no 3. You will find the same tools as kit no 3, but some additional supplies like 2m of backing material and 2 colors of specialized Irish waxed linen thread (black & white)

More specifically in kit 4, you will find:
  • a Teflon folder
  • a piercer
  • a pack of 4 standard long steel bookbinding needles
  • 3 meters of specialized Crawford's Irish waxed linen thread in white
  • 3 meters of specialized Crawford's Irish waxed linen thread in black
  • 2 meters of backing material for the book spines
  • 50ml of bookbinding Glue
  • a stipple brush for spreading the glue
  • 10 x 20cm headbands in different colors (total of 2 m)
  • a mechanical pencil with an eraser
  • a metallic paper cutter with a 9mm blade
  • a handmade pyrographic PU leather case of 20.5 x 11 cm in brown or black
