Our Book Centre is dedicated to teaching and promoting all the skills of the craft of making beautiful books. The centre is housed in restored outbuildings at the Grange just a few yards from the main house. We have a fully equipped bindery set around an old courtyard, with sewing frames, book and standing presses, foil embossing machine, guillotine, board cutter and other ancillary equipment.
The press room houses our fully restored Vandercook Proofing Press, Eagle and Arab platens, Albion and five Adanas. We have a composition room with a range of type including a good selection of unusual wooden type.
The Vandercook is widely used by printers, typesetters and the graphic arts industry throughout the world for printing high quality proofs and small production runs.
We run courses in marbling, letterpress printing, bookbinding and printmaking.
