Very sad to report that Trevor Hickman, who taught me nearly all I know about bookbinding, died a few days ago. He was 86 and living in quiet retirement in Leicestershire. I was fortunate in speaking to him on the phone some weeks ago for the first time in many years. I am privileged to have known him and learned from him.

Began bookbinding as a hobby 45-plus years ago. Acquired some degree of skill through practice, courses and workshops. Acquired good range of equipment, tools and materials and set up home bindery. For the past 25 years I have undertaken all kinds of repair and binding work for booksellers and collectors. I live near Stroud in Gloucestershire, UK. View all posts by therebindery
