Book Repairs

Stella Books resident book repair expert Sonia Bryant, shown on the right with her hearing dog Onyx, has been repairing books for Stella and Rose's Books for the last five years. During this period she has undergone extensive training, on a one to one basis, with one of the U.K.'s leading bookbinders, Pamela Richmond, who wrote the book Bookbinding a Manual of Techniques.

If your much-loved book is in need of some attention, Sonia can give you advice and undertake selected repair work.

For some free advice and a quote why not make an appointment to see Sonia in person at Stella Books, by either giving us a call on 01291 689755 or email  Sonia at
