Talin Bookbindery is a hand bookbinding business owned by Pamela Talin-Bryant and James Talin, a brother and sister partnership, since the late 1970s. We're located in historic Yarmouthport, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod.
We specialize in restoration and fine bindings and also bind small editions and single books. Some paper mending and paper deacidification is also available.
We can work on collectable editions or your favorite cookbook or dictionary. We use the same care and materials whatever the project.
We make all of the marbled papers used in our bindings and also for sale to other binderies and retail clients. For information on purchasing marble, please telephone the bookbindery.
Leather books are restored with imported leathers. For new leather bindings, we have an extensive selection of imported calf and goat. We also have some less expensive domestic leather available.
For cloth bindings, we have a large selection of cloths for use in restoration or new bindings.
One of our specialties is custom book boxes. Not only do we make boxes for books or paper materials, but we also make boxes for presentation coins and other objects.
