Each commission is given the same careful consideration and attention to detail.


Terms & Conditions


Established in 1955 in the heart of Birmingham, founder Alfred C Foley worked his way to eminence as a calligraphy teacher and successful businessman. His dream was to establish a centre of excellence for manuscript production and bookbinding and it is those dreams we strive to uphold today. We are proud to continue in his legacy and still use methods developed over the years in order to obtain the quality required for our products.
