Joseph Ramsey, the bookbinder, learned and perfected his craft during the 11 years he spent as a Benedictine monk. During his years as a monk and afterwards as a bookbinder in Chicago he repaired or rebound literally thousands of books. Now he has set up a small bindery in historic Ellensburg Washington where he lives with his family. 


Let us repair or rebind your most treasured books and we will add centuries to their lifetime.
