Artisan Books offers bespoke books to a wide audience. The service is targeted to creative professionals and artists, as well as anyone who wants ‘superior limited edition books at an affordable cost’.

Owned and managed by Francis Atterbury and Jo Hilton, Artisan Books are handmade in London using traditional book binding techniques combined with the most advanced digital printing technologies available today.

Located just outside of London, England, Artisan Books is a subsidiary of Hurtwood Press, the company established in 1978 by Rowley Atterbury and internationally regarded for their expertise in print production. Current Partners Francis Atterbury and Jo Hilton have more than thirty years experience of book production and high quality printing, as well as extensive experience in letterpress and litho printing. Hurtwood Press books are often fine art books and photography collections, but they have also produced exhibition catalogues and special edition books for publishers and clients.

Each Artisan Book is made with premium Mohawk Superfine paper as its foundation. “It was a simple decision. I’ve used Mohawk Superfine for 20 years, and quite simply, there is not a better paper for digital printing than Mohawk Superfine” said Francis Atterbury of the archival quality paper that does not fade or discolor over time.  The books make use of large format sheets of Mohawk Superfine Digital with i-Tone and are printed on the HP Indigo 10000.

Why Mohawk?

“It was a simple decision. I’ve used Mohawk Superfine for 20 years, and quite simply, there is not a better paper for digital printing than Mohawk Paper” sai Francis Atterbury, partner, Artisan Books.
