SB Libris, known as 'Libris', was established as a boutique bindery in 2004.  Such a unique business required a building of suitable character, so the workshop came to fruition inside a classic, Victorian building.  Perfectly located in the Arts Precinct of Bendigo, Australia, Libris is nestled amongst galleries, theatres, cafes and other boutique businesses.
