I create unique one of kind open spine construction hand made books/journals using fine quality beautiful handmade paper (& fabrics) for the covers and end papers. I use linen hinge tape inside the spines, acid free binder's board (cut to size & sanded) for the covers & spine pieces, good quality writing paper for the book block, & I hand sew them with linen thread & ribbon or sinew. I also incorporate found objects, geocentric designs in paper, vintage postcards or photos as a part of the book cover by gluing or sewing them into place. The hand made books that I make are a wonderful expression of how color, design, papers & reclaimed items can be made into a tangible touchable work of art, that can be completed by the writer or artist who chooses the journal for their very own.
