Fine Press Publishing

The creation of our books often involves the use of premium materials, handmade details, and a significant amount of manual labor, resulting in a meticulously produced, exquisite final product. However, given the human involvement and the natural materials used, absolute perfection in every detail is not always possible.

We view these minor imperfections not as flaws, but as integral to the charm of a handmade product. They are a testament to the personal care and attention that each book receives. It is important to note that serious defects are not included in this perspective, and we strive to rectify any such issues to the highest standards.

If you find minor imperfections to be unacceptable, we recommend carefully considering your purchase. While you are always welcome to return a book that does not meet your expectations, understanding our production process beforehand can enrich your appreciation of our craftsmanship. We encourage you to read the detailed descriptions of our production methods below to gain a deeper understanding of the labor and care invested in each book.


From our Sherlock Holmes short story collection, we have started printing our books on our very own Heidelberg Cylinder SBG.

While we love offset-printed books, there is something truly unique and special about letterpress. It has a very distinctive look, not to mention the sensational feeling you get when you pass your fingertips over the text.

This also means that our future lettered and numbered editions will be printed on various papers, often mould-made cotton. Although we have preferences for some brands, we’re always exploring and testing other types of paper. Whatever paper we choose for a certain edition, you can be certain that it will be the very best for it.

Printing letterpress is a long and sometimes painstaking process. It doesn’t always result in a perfect print, but it certainly looks (and feels) amazing. We see these slight variations as a true testament that a master craftsman has laboured over those pages.

Leather Covers

Some of our books are bound with leather covers, and we consistently strive to select leather of the highest quality, one that we can emboss with our logo proudly.

It’s important to recognize that leather, being a natural material, will inherently possess markings and scars that reflect an animal’s life experiences. While we make every effort to minimize the appearance of such markings, occasionally they are an unavoidable feature of the leather used for our covers.

These natural characteristics should not be seen as defects. Instead, we view them as adding to the ‘imperfectly perfect’ beauty of the material, which is exquisite in its authenticity.

Gilded Page Edges

Not all of our books feature gilded page edges, but those that do are crafted not by an automated machine, but by a skilled artisan using a manual process. As a result, small blemishes may occasionally appear on the gilding, each one bearing the unique touch of a master craftsman.

While we strive to minimize any imperfections, it is often not possible to completely avoid them. These slight irregularities should not be seen as flaws; rather, they are part of the charm of a genuinely handmade product. They signify that each book has been personally handled and meticulously crafted by a professional.

Marbled Endpapers

Not all of our books feature marbled endpapers, but those that do typically include a motif inspired by an element of the story. Each paper is handcrafted by a master artisan using the finest pigments available to create rich, unique patterns.

As a result, no two marbled papers are exactly the same; it would be virtually impossible to replicate them precisely. These papers should be appreciated for what they are: individual works of art, each contributing uniquely to the book’s overall creative concept. Occasionally, the ink may transfer to the other side of the paper during drying. In some cases, we choose to leave this as it is, viewing it as a signature of the artist and a testament to the handmade process.

Handwritten Title

Not all of our lettered editions feature a title written by hand, but for those that do, the title is often penned in shimmering ink that complements the story and our creative concept. These titles are inscribed before the sewing and binding process, and undergo a series of drying and sealing steps to minimize the risk of smearing.

Each title is uniquely its own, thanks to the variable nature of the ink and the individual style of the calligraphy involved. This personal touch adds a distinctive artistic element to each book, underscoring the bespoke nature of our editions.
