About Handmade Books

handmade bookUnique handmade books are a wonderfully accessible art form somewhere between conventional books and paper sculpture, they usually have pages but may not always be made of paper.

They can be used for exploring or containing many ideas and forms of creative expression but can also be simply beautiful in themselves –empty and full of possibility.

Unique books can draw on a range of art and craft disciplines in their making –painting, drawing, stitching, paper folding/construction, printmaking, calligraphy and graphic design. Basic structures are easily learned, introducing one to endless possibilities.

Handmade books make uniquely personal gifts and can be used for memories or journeys or to honour a special person or occasion.
