bookbinding tool, brass finishing tool, στοιχειοθέτης, Εργαλεία βιβλιοδεσίας, single typeholder, typeholder
There are many times during finishing where a typeholder for single type pieces comes much handier compared to those used for whole words: when tooling a title vertically on a spine, for design purposes which call for tooling letters individually and for corrections when tooling entire titles and a single letter didn’t leave as clear an impression.
In such cases this kind of typeholder allows, being lighter and smaller, better control and line of sight.
The typeholder can receive a wide range of type sizes from really small (f.e. 6) to big ones (f.e. 36) and holds the type down firmly with a twist of the screw.
The price for the typeholder is 160 euros

I just finally got a chance to test your tool a few minutes ago, and am so incredibly happy with it! Thank you very very much. I’ve been binding books well over two decades, and I know tools. Your tool is definitely must-have tool that I’d recommend to anyone who wants to get into this craft.
I really like this tool and am glad I finally purchased it. It’s very well made and neat with a good handle shape. I like the way there’s enough mass in the holder to retain an even temperature but the design still allows for easy positioning. Exactly what I have needed for finishing. Thanks again!
Well-made, solid, beautiful, and obviously designed with care.
I wish I had ordered it before! Beautiful, unique and practical item that can be passed forward for generations. A true treasure.
I think it is beautifully designed and I love the handle. Looks very good, like a tool made to be used! I am very happy with it.
Most tools accompany their binder (or even his successors) for decades and that’s reason enough to make them good looking apart from efficient.
Can’t complain, especially from the US which has been the most frequent destination of the tools so far.
(PS- How are things rolling in the UK?)
It’s been going pretty well! Alas this trip is wrapping up and I’ll be flying back to the states for about 2.5 months before I return in February. I’m going to work on your mosaic during the holidays…be thinking about colors and designs! 😉 (And remember that I have to be able to fit it in my carry-on!)
