About

I am creating this picture-blog to keep a record of my handmade books. Please follow me as I work to improve my craft.

I love designing each unique handmade book. They are modified softcover Japanese binding books with decorated or collaged covers.

Mini books are approximately 3″ x 4″ or smaller. These are filled with student-grade sketch papers and manila.

Sketchbooks are larger, up to 6″ x 7 1/2″. These stab-bound softcover books have nice higher quality artist’s paper inside, including Rives heavyweight and Canson pastel papers.
Some of these books have an original watercolor by Harry Lang mounted on the cover. Others have a collage by me with handmade paper elements, or my own marbleized papers.

Books are very sturdy and stand up to lots of handling.
