Welcome to my shop of hand-bound books and journals.
I take great care in choosing vintage leathers old books and other little vintage snippets to include in my handmade books. Handwaxed linen threads, unusual papers sometimes tea stained and hand torn are some of the distinguishing features your book will possess.
My background is familial. Needlework seems almost genetic in my family. Most likely beginning before my greatgrandmother who's shop "Au Rouet" (spinningwheel) was in Quimper France.
Her son also spent time with needlework as many French mariners did.
My mother worked with massive bolts of fabric on a ping pong table in our basement making beautiful drapery for an interior decorator but it was book binding that brought me back to needlework. Having been on a hiatus I am slowly rebuilding my stock. Above is a sampling of my work previous sold through Etsy and Craft Fairs.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my shop.
