Our History


In 1907, Arthur Rahm began practicing bookbinding in downtown Colorado Springs, crafting leather bindings and intricate embossing. His work can still be found in public records and private collections. His nephew, Edward Rahm (1926-1994) continued the tradition of custom bookbinding, eventually teaching the craft to his daughter, Eileen Rahm, who owned and operated the business for 34 years.

In 2006, David Duguid partnered with Rahm Bookbinding to practice traditional bookbinding and restoration. Rahm Bookbinding now only offers custom work to an exclusive handful of clients, continuing a century-old tradition of fine leather work and embossing.
