As simply as the name states this blog is all about books, by design. I love bookbinding, it is a beautiful and exciting way for me to create and express myself and yet make something useful and personal. I created this blog because I thought that like myself, others would appreciate the beauty of a hand-sewn custom designed journal. I also want to open this blog as a way for people to get something that they feel is unique for them, one of a kind. I have an idea for an online store where you are the designer! Meaning that you can choose from my selections or you can send me your own ideas and I will custom make a journal or even rebind an old and loved book!

I was inspired to learn about bookbinding and rebinding when I was in the Philippines, I lived there for about 18 months and loved it! While I was there I had one of my favorite books rebound and personalized and thought it was the neatest thing!

Here’s the books that started it all, my personalized set of scriptures;

So I learned how to do it myself so I could personalize all my beloved books, as well as those of my friends!

About me

I’m recently graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in studio art, so I’m starting a new part of my life… Adulthood! 🙂 And what better way to start off than to start my own custom bookbinding blog and business! I am from Santa Rosa, California and have always loved to create, I do a lot of watercolor and have dabbled in a lot of different kinds of art. I guess you could say that creating is my hobby, and I love to mix a little bit of the new and modern with the past. I believe in quality, and create each book with love, each is a piece of art to me.

  1. Where did you get your book rebound in the Philippines? Did you learn in the Philippines or upon your return to the USA. Great work!
