handcrafted books
Handcrafted books combining traditional bookbinding skills & contemporary design, using decorative papers, eco-friendly cork & sustainable materials.

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.

Several of my books styles are made using eco friendly cork, which is sustainable and vegan. I intend to expand my eco friendly, sustainable range this year.
