The Art of Making a Gryphon Book
Publication of a Gryphon Edition begins with the acquisition of an important edition of a classic work.
The interior of the original is faithfully reproduced, page by page. Our craftspeople create a volume of uncommon quality and durability using methods employed for centuries. Every volume is fully bound in leather, or is quarter bound with fine library buckram, and embellished with an original design stamped in gold. The raised bands across the spine are distinctive of the classic bookmaker’s art. Colorful endleaves are reminiscent of fine Old World editions. Coordinating headbands grace both ends of the spine and add strength. The acid-free leaves are Smyth-sewn, their edges gilded for additional protection and elegance. A satin ribbon marker ensures easy reference. For the discriminating collector, Gryphon Editions enrich a home or office while providing a lifetime of intellectual stimulation. They make perfect birthday presents, graduation gifts, and one-of-a-kind gifts for any occasion! Interested to know more?
