Frank Wiesner apprenticed in Germany to become a Master of Woodcraft.
His bookbinding equipment shows the attention to detail and long association
with bookbinders throughout the world. Not only exceptionally functional,
they are a pleasure to use due to the beauty of his workmanship. We
know of no other bookbinding equipment that can compare to his. After
trying many different presses (both old and new), we now only use Frank's
because of their exceptional quality. They are made from seasoned Tasmanian
Oak, a unique Australian hardwood.
In addition to the standard items listed below, Frank can produce almost
any specialty items that may be required. Please call or write with
your special needs. Images for all items can be found by clicking on
