Lyra’s Books was established by bookbinder Richard Tong. We produce luxury, handmade books using traditional skills that have been passed down through many generations of binders. As well as binding books, we are about to double up as a fine press publisher specialising in modern classics.
In early 2018, Richard was presented the prestigious Elizabeth Soutar award for his binding of ‘American Gods’ by Neil Gaiman. Of the two bindings he made, one is in the National Library Of Scotland and the other belongs to the author.
