Hello I am planning on getting a wedding planner and a wedding book for my partner for when I pop the question and I planned on asking Aston from Aston handmade but I have tried to go on his website and it has now disappeared and is a blog in a foreign language. Does anyone know of anywhere I can speak to someone for a custom made book? I don't mind where they are but if they are in the UK that would be ideal.

Thanks for all the help guys.

TMLee from Singapore does custom books. He sometimes posts on FPG and has a long running thread on FPN

The absolute best handmade books I have ever seen are the Design Y Journals from Japan. It is real artisan work, I dabble in book binding and make some of my own journals but the work that Mr. Yoshina does is absolutely without equal. It is pricey, around $50 for a 13.5cm x 9cm journal but the cover is leather, the paper, 288 pages, is Tomoe R. and the construction, sewing, and gluing are flawless. I have never been happier to pull out my journal than when I had a Design Y journal. They have other sizes as well. http://design-y.near-mint.com No affiliation just a very satisfied customer.
