Stuart Brockman

With my work I am aiming to successfully combine the durability of a traditional British binding with a modern slick tactile feel.  I use the finest forwarding techniques that have developed over centuries as well as established finishing methods such as gold tooling, but try to include where possible modern, and original ideas like airbrushing and paintings under vellum.
