The Bindery's current guise as an antique shop.
The National Book Bindery of Georgia has served the Atlanta area for a number of years in different fashions. The Building started its life as a book binding factory, designed by A Ten Eyck Brown and his associate Alfredo Barili Jr. This would be the same team that would designed the US Post Office (now the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Building) and the Fulton County Courthouse. A. Ten Eyck Brown would go on to be one of the most prolific architects in Atlanta in the 20th century, designing primarly public structures like the Sweet Auburn Curb Market and many other civic buildings. A Barili Jr. would go on to form his own architectural firm, Barili & Humphreys, that designed the beautiful First Presbyterian Church, as well as other private and public buildings of significance. In January 2016, plans were announced to demolish the building to make way for a parking deck. The Atlanta Preservation Center advocates for the preservation of this structure, as it represents the work of two great Atlanta architects.
