"By the way, I am very impressed with this teacher [Mr. Chrisman] and his bookbinding methods. These DVDs are just what I've been looking for. I was not completely happy with the classes in bookbinding I took here in Spain, and I couldn't put my finger on why until watching Mr. Chrisman's instruction. His level of knowledge and expertise, as well as his very obvious respect for the craft, historical fidelity, and the book itself, were elements missing from my live classes."

"The best bookbinding leather I've ever found comes from Bookbinders Workshop. I use their leathers exclusively. They sell different types of leather and it is all first quality. The skins have a wonderful hand, soft and supple. Unlike most other skins I've used, these tend to be nearly free of defects. The colors are gorgeous. Not only is this leather a joy to work with, it is also a good value. You won't find leather of this quality for anywhere near this price elsewhere. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this BBWS leather is not only a good value, but there is no trade-off for quality. In fact, the quality of the leather far exceeds that of anything else I've ever used. How many times in life do you pay less to get more?"

"Hi, Michael. What else can I say but Fantastic. Fantastic DVD! I have not yet moved on to binding in leather, but this DVD (Binding in 19th Century Period-Style) has inspired me to have a go. I particularly enjoyed the gold working on the spine (wow, so fast!). I will now start to collect all the other DVD's in the series. Very best wishes to you and your family."

"It [the DVD] is a wonderful introduction. I am sure that even those with more knowledge [in bookbinding] will also have something to gain, including the wonderful money saving item shown. My first reaction is that I am not afraid to get started. Of course I have a lot to learn but what was shown was not complicated to understand. This was made even easier by your easy and relaxed style. I have to say that I was totally absorbed throughout the DVD."
"I have always been very impressed with your visionary approach to your businesses and the monstrous effort, work, skill and creative innovation you both put in to them. Thanks again for the quality and class of your supplies."

"I received the samples a short while ago and I can see why BBWS is over the moon about them, they are far more interesting than so much leather produced in the UK."
