This is the last working bookbinding company in Cairo. It's worth visiting to buy a beautifully leather-bound and gilt-decorated diary, sketchbook, or photo album. These skills are rare in the 21st century. What better place to buy a blank trip journal where you can record your thoughts? Abd El-Zahar will also bind your books or albums for you but require around 10 days turnaround.
