Faenwyl Bindery

Spoiler alert: We here at BFDC love books, prints, paper, ephemera! But sometimes they need some tender loving care. When they do, we trust Cara Schlesinger at the Fænwyl Bindery to make them all better — her work, from paper repair to bespoke rebindings, is top-notch (and beautiful, too!).
