Benjamin Elbel

I make bespoke books, boxes and presentation material for creative people

My love for bookbinding started 10 years ago and took me to France, Switzerland, Germany, UK where i studied and worked, and many other countries including the USA where i teach and give lectures. Since 2015 I live in the Netherlands and and run my own business together with Kieke Schaaper. Our studio in the west side of Amsterdam is an inspiring environment devoted to book creation. We have a collection of weird and wonderful machines from the past, exciting materials, very specific skills and a desire to challenge all that every day to carry out your projects, no matter how crazy!
