    Simply superb! I was slightly hesitant at first as there are cheaper bookbinding kits available but this one looked like it ticked all the boxes. It arrived beautifully packaged and the contents look & feel extremely high quality as promised. The instruction guide is BRILLIANT, each step is so well explained and the photographs make it all so easy to follow. Highly recommended!!

    I received this kit for Christmas and made my first book yesterday. It is absolutely great! The quality of the equipment you get is very good (e.g the scissors are all metal and packaged nicely) The instructions for making the books is very, very simple and written in a way which is easy to understand. Which made making the book a very nice process. Honestly so pleased I received this as a gift and I will make many more!

    A really good kit with high quality materials. I received this as a gift. One of the components was missing from my kit but the replacement was sent out very quickly. The instructions are comprehensive and easy to follow.

    This is a wonderfully thought out kit containing everything you need. I attended one of the introductory workshops and it has been great to be able to practice the skill knowing that I have everything to hand.
