Métier’s Closer is the day-to-night briefcase of your dreams.

Chances are, your basement or attic, like so many of ours, is plagued by a beloved yet overwhelming collection of photographs—a dilemma that cries out for an elegant solution. After working for Asprey for 17 years and heading its North American business for nine, Philip Warner knows a thing or two about the world of preservation and gift-giving. That’s what inspired him to transform people’s scattered keepsakes into memorable collections.

Warner creates made-to-measure photo books and albums, produced using printers and binders of the highest quality. He not only digitally scans and restores each photograph but, he also uploads the images to a password-protected website, where family members can assist in identifying the photos. The books are printed using archival paper and ink and bound in sumptuous leather. Just how sumptuous depends on your checkbook (albums start at $10,000 each, plus restoration costs). Recently, Sotheby’s began recommending his services to its collectors. Of the finished product, one client said, “It took everyone’s breath away.”
