Blissful Books and Bindings

Sangorski & Sutcliffe

English bookbinders Francis Sangorski (1875-1912) and George Suttcliffe (1878-1943) formed their bindery in 1901. They specialized in jeweled bindings, but did not limit themselves to any one form. The company survives today as SSZ, a combination of the Zaehnsdorf and Sangorski & Sutcliffe firms.
