Q&A: Ian Chamberlain, managing director, Tudor Bookbinding

Ian has worked in print finishing since he left school at the age of 16, barring a brief interlude in 1975 when he tried his hand at being a milkman, a cooked meats salesman, and a van driver, before (we’re happy to say) returning to his roots. Ian was a binding room manager at Taylor Bloxham in Leicester, prior to setting up Wigston-based Tudor Bookbinding in 1992.
