As well as appearing at craft fairs and having a small range of stock for sale online and in select stores, Anachronalia also provides a bespoke service.

Perhaps you have a document you would like making into a unique book or would like a notebook to match your attire. Maybe you are looking for a decorative scroll or want to put a code wheel into your notebook. I'm happy to discuss the possibilities with you. Examples of past work can be seen in the gallery pages.

To enquire about a commission please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. In your email include:

  • What you want. Please provide as complete a description as you can including details such as colour, possible fabrics, genre etc. Inspirational pictures are also welcome!
  • When you need it for. An approximate date is OK, but this allows for planning. Commission slots can fill up quickly, but smaller commissions can sometimes be squeezed in at short notice, so it is always worth checking. Lead in for book commissions can be anywhere between 3-6 weeks, although stock items or items using stock materials can potentially be provided at shorter notice.

  • What your budget is. Where a budget is fixed I will give you the options for what is feasible within it. Where a there is no fixed budget, a range of options can be produced allowing you to tailor your commission as you see fit. (During construction, I will advise you if there are options which could alter the price should the parametres of the commission change for any reason. Nothing will be done without prior agreement on price.).

You will then receive a quote and we can further discuss the specifics so that you get the item you really want.

If you are enquiring about having a specific block of text bound then I will advise you on formatting and how best to send the document (electronic or in hard copy). A basic type setting service is also possible, for an additional charge.

A deposit will be required to confirm the commission, the exact amount of the deposit will be included in the quote. Once a commission has been agreed I will keep in contact with you through the making process.
