After Gutemberg’s movable type invention, the Republic of Venice became the world leader of the book industry, and artisanal bookbinding became one of the main activities in the city.
This experience gives you the opportunity to discover the traditional Venetian bookbinding technique and, together with your host, make use of high-quality and ethic Italian leather and of the renown Fabriano Art Paper to craft your first entirely handmade book, which you will keep for yourself at the end of it!
You can choose from Two sizes of books: A4 (Large) or A5 (Medium). The price of the experience varies according to your preferred book size.
For vegans and vegetarians, who would be interested in this experience but would rather not work with leather, paper can be used instead of the skin.
The cost of this private experience depends on both your favorite option and the number of people in your party
