Leather Books

Here at the Little Egret Press we take great pride in the books that we publish. This is especially true with our luxury leather bound editions. Each one is hand bound by our master craftsman Tom O'Reilly using the finest materials and his exceptional creative skills which have been honed over many years.

Because each leather book is individually hand bound using traditional book binding methods, each and every copy is unique and an item of artistic beauty

Tom O’Reilly began an apprenticeship with his father, the renowned bookbinder Kevin Reilly, in 1993. Kevin was described by John Benjemen, as a ‘book producer of genius’ for his work on the The Old Stones of Lands End, published by the Elephant Press, 1973.

Tom worked with his father to create special bindings for clients such as Sir James Goldsmith, Edward Goldsmith, The Earl of St Germans, Zac Goldsmith, Sir John Aspinal, Andrew Lanyon, Guy Bentinck, Ken Symonds, and Robert Lenkiewicz.

In 2011 Tom graduated from University College Falmouth with a Master’s degree in Illustration. His graduation exhibition featured illustrative bookbinding, and explored the concept of bookbinding as a form of art as well as craft.

Over the past few years, Tom’s book bindings have been exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer Show 2012, and the V&A collection, and he has been commissioned to restore and reproduce books for the National Trust. His work is collected and commissioned by bibliophiles from all over the world.

With such expert craftsmanship and the finest materials used on every leather book that we produce it is no wonder that each edition sells out quickly and become highly desirable collectors items.
