handcrafted books
I create beautiful yet practical books, entirely by hand, using decorative papers, fabric, eco-friendly cork and 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 via Etsy, The British Craft House, Cambridge Contemporary Crafts and at local craft fairs.

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, very tactile and hardwearing.
