The Plaza Bespoke Bindery

Step back into history and pay homage to the time-honored craft of bookbinding at the Assouline Bespoke Bindery. In an advancing digital age, Assouline honors the origins of the bound book by reinvigorating the exquisite artistry of traditional binding, custom tailored to individual requests, from personalized monogramming and embossing to custom colors, covers, and casing using naturally tanned leather and handmade endpapers from artisans in Paris, Florence, and New York.

Renowned bookbinder Paul Vogel works entirely by hand using the finest archival-quality materials and century-old equipment of bone, steel, and wood, to help craft the perfect gifts for bibliophiles and collectors alike.
