Handcrafted books
Handcrafted books combining traditional bookbinding skills with contemporary designs, using decorative papers, leather and eco-friendly cork.

I love books and, when I discovered the craft of bookbinding several years ago, my love of all things book related came full circle.  Encouraged by my bookbinding tutor, I began to create my own books and now sell at local craft fairs and a Cambridge gallery.

One of my favourite binding styles is Coptic - exposed spine stitching allowing the book to lay flat when open.  I also love to make Leporellos - concertina photo/memory books, which are a lovely way to carry special memories with you wherever you go.

I make several book styles in leather and have recently started using cork, which is a naturally regenerating material and both eco and vegan friendly.
