Everywhere you look in The Wyvern Bindery you’ll see piles of beautiful books in various stages of production. Some are being bound from scratch: the minutes of a City of London livery company meeting, for example, or the papers from a celebrated court case. Some are being repaired: an early 20th-century scrapbook about the Queen’s bodyguard needs a new spine; there are rips to the pages of a 17th-century volume of home remedies. And some are just there because Mark Winstanley thinks they’re splendid and loves to show them off.
