Paul C Delrue 1944 - 2024
It is with great sadness that we must inform customers that Paul Delrue passed way in early January after a period of ill health, aged 79. Being a bookbinder for nearly 65 years he leaves a great void in our close-knit profession and will be deeply missed by many. His business will continue however with work being carried out by Adam Jurkojc who has worked beside Paul for the past ten years or so, and who brings the same care, quality and craftsmanship that customers have come to expect.
