Description

Simeon first discovered book binding as a teenager, at the elbow of Paul Delrue, arguably one of the most skillful and prolific designer binders of our time.

After completing a Degree in The History of Art and Design in Manchester, and later a Degree in Osteopathy Simeon returned to his hometown of Ruthin to raise his family, and run his Osteopathic Practice Well St Clinic, with his wife George, who is also an Osteopath, Founder of Bathing Beauty and Cafe at The Source.

 

Simeon is a very accomplished binder. His first book The Somme, won a prize at the Designer Binders annual Competition and was subsequently bought, and preserved for the nation by The British Library. Another one of his books, was bought by the National Library of Wales. Most recently he had a book exhibited at The Saatchi Gallery in London as part of the Collect Exhibition.
