Hand made books

decorative end papers
I enjoy watercolor journaling and have filled many commercial watercolor journals. These journals either have the paper quality I want or the binding I like, but not both.  So I started looking at how to make my own journals using the paper and binding of my choice.  I read about making books and even purchased a book kit, but that didn’t turn out well.  It wasn’t until I took a book making class at John C. Campbell Folk School that I really learned how to make books.  I enjoyed the class so much that I have gone back to take many additional classes.      

I make a variety of books with stitched bindings, as well as accordion books.  You can follow my adventures in book binding in my blog.
