A basic kit of hand tools for beginning bookbinders. If you’ve come along to one of the workshops here on Iona, you’ll recognise all of these tools as the same ones we used during the class.

What's included in the price?

The kits contain an awl, thread snips, three bookbinding needles, 10m of beeswax coated linen thread, a non-skid steel ruler, and either a bone or bamboo folder. Everything you need to make books at home! Please note the colour of items in each kit will vary.
