My hand bound leather blank journals are sewn through the spine, allowing books to lay flat, and have unique spine designs. Standard books are made in three sizes. I use Arches Textwove paper, decorative papers, and silk thread for sewing and twining. Closures are made with antler, wood or stone buttons, or leather and copper rings. Those materials are all found and then worked as necessary in my studio to become buttons. Refillable books can be used over and over again with the addition of new refill inserts which are also available for sale. Etched Copper Bookplates, which I create, are available on some books and sold separately. I create leather checkbooks, and smaller, simple leather books. Custom work is welcome.
