There is a guy that makes these sweet journals in softback but i want one in hardback but he wont do it. Might be able to get an uncased block that he said i could have a bookbinder put a hardcover on. They'd have to be well practiced because its expensive paper

You might ask the good people at https://www.zb.uzh.ch. They have many old books and might know somebody who does what you want.

What's expensive paper? The inside of the book?
It's not that difficult if the inside is already bound and cut.
You just need the press.

I can find you a bookbinder in Lausanne or Montreux.... if that's not too far.

The paper is quite expensive "onion skin" paper and quite delicate. Not literally onion skin lol

Actually the Library put me in touch with a book binder in ZH which is awesome Going to visit them in a few days.

I Love this forum!

The inside paper can be delicate per sheet. But together it's quite strong.

There should some sort of 'cover'/ outside paper that should be stronger. It's the inside of the outside cover.

Let us know what the book binder say. I'm curious how much they are going to charge...

Re: Anyone do book binding here?

Fancy a trip out Rapperswil way?

This is really info only, as I don't have any personal experience with these folks. But I drive by frequently and have always wanted to pop in one day and see what they do...

So if you need an excuse for an excursion to the other end of the lake, you might want to check Atelier Rayman. And if they can't help you I'd venture a guess that they might be able to direct you to someone who could.

Of course, where else than Rapperswil for this sort of things. Good to know this place, thank you.
