Welcome to Paper Dolly Bindery

paper-dolly-portraitPaper Dolly is a small, traditional bindery in Devon, where I combine my passion for making with fresh contemporary design and age-old traditional craftsmanship in fine quality books, albums, portfolios and boxes.

Everything I sell is 100% handmade, in house from carefully selected papers, boards, book-cloths and leathers. As well as making traditional classics like my cache portfolios and half-bound journals, I love creating something new and completely original like the Vintage Suitcase Travel Journals or incorporating my own artwork into a design. Every time you visit this website you will find something new.

I also offer a unique bespoke service; If you’re an Artist I could make you a sketchbook or portfolio with your own artwork on the cover. Printmakers, I can bind your prints into limited edition books or portfolios. Photographers, I can create bespoke boxes or albums for your collections of prints. Bespoke possibilities are bound only by your imagination.


From Sketchbooks to Solander Boxes we have something for everyone…

Paper Dolly’s Bespoke and Edition Services

Here at Paper Dolly I offer a full bespoke service from the one-off to limited edition runs.

For example with my ‘Your Artwork Here’ service, you send me a digital file of your painting, drawing or illustration – or a printout of your artwork and I make you a high quality, completely, unique sketchbook or portfolio with your own amazing artwork on the covers.

I also offer an edition binding service and work with you to create your own limited edition books or portfolios of prints. You provide the pages and I stitch them together and bind them into beautiful books in the style of your choosing.

Coming very soon …
