badly made books

badly made books is an Irish bookbinders
printers, designers & stationery manufacturers based in
Cork city specialising in high-quality, low-impact books.
our workshop celebrates curiosity and determination,
qualities needed to look past failure and bring new ideas
to fruition. this is how the first badly made books were
designed, a process of prototyping and experimentation
that resulted in a novel method of binding books that
allows our books to lay flat so each page can be fully used
we choose to use recycled materials, risograph printing
and as many hand-operated, pre-used machines as possible.
we do our best to incorporate sustainability into every aspect
of our material selection & production process by adapting
old processes and inventing new ones to meet the needs
of the future.
