Atelier Martial Bookbinding

Located in the heart of Paris, Atelier Martial has become a key player in bookbinding in the capital, offering a range of know-how that subtly combines the art of the book with that of leather. Founded in 1973 by Philippe Martial, later joined by his son Julien Martial, the workshop has succeeded over the years in combining different techniques and thereby extending its expertise to the fields of hand gilding, binding, cladding, hot stamping and embossing. Renowned for its prestigious creations of uncommon skills, Atelier Martial’s main clientele includes major luxury houses, communications agencies, and international art galleries.

The team of experienced craftspeople at Atelier Martial carries out all the different projects from design to end-product. Hand-gilding with gold leaf for book titling, leather decoration, traditional or custom-made bookbinding, creation of cases, boxes, and other objects covered with leather, they adapt their savoir-faire of excellence to each assignment, linking the past with the contemporary.
