A visit to Bibliotheca Wittockiana

Bibliotheca Wittockiana, bookbinding, ganebrothers

Since 1846 our core business has been bookbinding. So, while
visiting Brussels, Belgium recently we took the opportunity to check out Bibliotheca
Wittockiana, the only museum in the world devoted principally to the art of
fine bookbinding.  It contained a
collection of decorative bookbinding spanning five centuries.  Bibliotheca Wittockiana also hosts
bookbinding workshops to carry on the tradition.  This was a nice glimpse of the craftsmanship employed in
binderies for centuries, and some of the equipment and methods that were used
then, and still today.
