As an author, writing a book is work of extreme endeavor and having your very own book published is an amazing experience. When I decided to have some of my books hardbound to give as special gifts, to acknowledge the support certain individuals gave me on the project, I searched out and found Roger Grech.
He demonstrated amazing skills as a bookbinder. Not only was I to find that my trust was well placed, I’ve ended up with an amazing finished product – seven books in all. Roger is responsive and provided excellent advice from endpaper, to the type of leather, to the colours: every detail was attended to. Writing and publishing a book has been a very special milestone for me and Roger greatly added to the joy I experienced in this process. I highly commend him to anybody seeking to have a book traditionally bound. He is a Master craftsman whom I have no hesitation in recommending wholeheartedly.
