APB Importers announced that Italian-based Il Legatore, a fine book binder and leather craftsman design company, made its U.S. debut at the recent PhotoPlus Expo in New York City and will be opening a New York showroom soon.
Located in the beautiful Marches region of Ancona, Italy, Il Legatore is known for its high quality and designer leather albums. All work is custom-made by artisans and contains rich leathers, colors and textures.
“Italy is known for their Avant Garde design and Il Legatore is known for bringing it to their Fine Albums,” said Anna Pia of APB Importers, adding that the prices are competive with U.S. design makers.
The roots of the Bottega del legatore reach deep into the realms of tradition. Glue and cardboard, thread, vegetable-tanned natural leathers, boards, spines and headbands are a few traditional tools of the trade. All work is entrusted to the craftsmanship of its bookbinders, who have inherited a historic tradition.
