The Bookcraft Bindery was created in 1990 following a move from Montreal, Quebec to Ottawa, Ontario. Pierre Thibaudeau, Master bookbinder initially trained with a bookbinding firm in Montreal, La Tranchfile. To further his study Pierre apprenticed for several years with Hubert Leurs, now retired Master bookbinder from the National Archives in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. A shop was created to accommodate the work of The Bookcraft Bindery. Initially, most of the work came from Antiquarian book dealers in Ottawa and grew to include collectors, private citizens and government agencies.
