Ariad Bookbinding was first established in 2019 by Majid Sadeghi who served a five years apprenticeship in the field of bookbinding and book restoration at Chaharbagh School in Isfahan, Iran. He holds a B.S in Architectural Engineering from Mohaghegh Ardabili University. He then worked as one of the leading bookbinders of Iran, managing a workshop under the Ariad brand for about 22 years, where they specialised in using traditional and modern binding methods to publish new custom designed books and restore timeworn volumes to their original state.
After travelling to Australia, Majid is now a member of the Victorian Bookbinding Guild (VBG) and the Managing Director of Ariad Bookbinding here in the heart of Melbourne’s South East, servicing both Australian and International customers alike.
With over 25 years of experience, Majid manages one of the few independent binderies available in Australia that offers specialty hand binding, fine limited-edition binding, unique and innovative gold embossing techniques, and the conservation and restoration of rare and precious books - including historical literature and centuries old family bibles housed in private and public libraries across Australia.
Majid is a very passionate Bookbinder and takes pride in sharing his art with book lovers and writers from all over.
