Do you want to make your own books?


This kit is all you need to start making books and boxes at home. The set has been carefully put together by master bookbinder Yvette Ja who has been making books for over 12 years. I am firmly of the school that the most important thing, when it comes to making books, is to just start. Craft and form can come later, you will learn as you go. I have sourced these tools from years of my own bookbinding and found that everything you need is right here.

This is the basic tool kit for both bookbinding and boxmaking. Some tools are not pictured. See the list below.


Your kit includes:


  • 2 bonefolders
  • 1 awl
  • 1 thread cutter
  • 1 block of Beeswax
  • 1 set of bookbinders needles
  • 1 specialist glue brush
  • 3 x linen thread
  • PVA glue
  • Binder Clips
  • Scalpel
  • Ruler
  • Heavy duty PVA Glue
  • Brush
  • Masking tape
  • Sandpaper/board 
  • packaged into a Kraft box ready to use.
