Since 1997, Bindery Wilgenkamp is established in Blokker, community of Hoorn, the Netherlands, 45 kilometer above Amsterdam.
We bind one of a kind books and boxes or small edition
s for special occasions, tailor made.
For anyone who wants to learn this challenging and fascinating craft we teach bookbinding in our bindery.


Bookbinding is a modern craft that is still developping with a lot of opportunities to bind your book.
The design, the binding together with the color and choice of materials are determinative for the appearance and use of your book.
We are happy to advise you to make a choice with the use of materials of good quality.
We also produce tailor made boxes, slipcases or another forms of (flexible) book or document protection.


If you are planning to print your own book, please contact the bookbinder first!
We don't mind to advice you before you go to the printer.
After printing we love to bind your book.

We offer lessons in several levels in groups of max. six participants.
