Handcrafted Journals

IMG_9246

 

I cut and work several different tans of leather, create and prepare distinctive, decorative, archival, handmade papers, and bind the two together with six-ply parachute tack cord to craft durable and everlasting books for everyone to enjoy, in current and many future generations to come. The handmade paper is acid-free and archival to protect the life of everything put on and in between them.

Using traditional methods, I bind handmade papers and leather together to create personal journals.

With my artistic perspective on book binding, I fuse traditional and contemporary — using inventive techniques to create extraordinary and beautiful works of art for function and admiration!
