Medium Handmade Books
Hand bound leather blank journals now including stone buttons and copper work, checkbook covers. Custom work welcomed.




Kasey creates hand bound blank journals using acid free handmade papers from around the world, decorative papers and leather. Her favorite method uses decorative stitching where

inside page sections are sewn directly through the spine. This creates a very sturdy book which opens flat, making the books very easy to use. Inside papers are Arches Text Wove, a perfect paper for drawing, calligraphy, ink and pencil. Found stones, buttons of deer antler or wood which she makes, or copper with a leather strap become closures. Etched copper book plates adorn some of the books. Kasey considers herself the first artist, knowing that individuals who purchase her books and use them are the second artists for these keepsakes! Custom work is welcome. She enjoys working with clients to create the book of

their dreams.
