Micheal has been running his bookbinding business for over 25 years and is a mine of information in this historic trade. Not only is his enthusiasm captivating, but his dedication into providing a truely accurate craft with attention to details, fits right in to his location along with fellow craftsmen in the surrounding Victorian Precinct of Oamaru. It was a pleasure to spend time here!!

Michael is an unusual and interesting man and an afternoon spent talking to him is an afternoon well spent.

Michael O'Brien is a traditional bookbinder in his Victorian bindery in the Historic Precinct in Oamaru. What an amazing place to visit and find book gifts. I go here regularly for Christmas gifts and always have a chat as Michael will spend time if he isn't in the middle of glueing up a book. The ambience and charm in this shop is not to be missed nor are his books ranging from middle ages to contemporary styles.
