Saw this in Chapters bookshop in Dublin the other day and thought it a nice thing. Duffy’s bookbinders, located in the North Inner City – and known to generations of people getting theses bound – have started to produce a range of hand bound notebooks. The sort of thing that larger companies or corporations do – I don’t need to mention those brands –  and you’ll find in every bookshop you go into.  Nice to see a local company doing it, and particularly given the hand crafted aspect of it. Useful and good gifts.

Kudos for highlighting a local business which is trying to stay afloat in the era of mass crapification of everything – Especially a book binder :-). I’m hoping a few artisan businesses can outlast the current monopolisation of capital expediency over social need. Ireland will need these “seed” businesses at some time in the future.

Also, I have a few books that are over a 150 years old and still in good condition. Will we able to say that about floppy disks, hard drives, CDs or usb sticks in a 150 years?

I’m always a bit loath to mention products or companies (though I was in Freebird Records and Spindizzy Records today for the first time in ages, and it was a real pleasure), and I don’t know anyone in Duffy’s btw. But Duffy’s have been around for ages. I remember struggling to their in the late 80s to get stuff bound and they were just really sound.

Really true re books in general.
