Hong Kong Craftsman : Siuyuett the Bookbinder

Scott Mullenberg, Bookbinder

Scott Mullenberg is a masterful bookbinder who specializes in building custom portfolios for photographers, designers and other visual creatives. This video documents the process of him building a custom portfolio book and slip case.

This is not so much about the technique of book binding but the concept of it; of having a photographer’s work in printed pages; of the romance of a book, the seduction of having a print portfolio, of having something you can hold and turn in your hand.
