Crazy intense 3 day leather binding work shop at The Fish Bindery in Barrington RI. We worked on a sewn in cord binding and a case bound book. I still have to finish the case bound book here. I will take photos of the finished book once it’s completed. Thank you Jason and Eleanor for the knowledge, and patience, and hospitality! Here is a highlight reel of a small portion of what goes into the binding of a book.

Leather writing pad covers

This leather writing pad cover is hand sewn and designed to fit composition note books. I started making these covers for some friends who use these note books at work, but wanted something nicer to show up to meetings with.   

The covers messure 7.75 x 10.25. There are three card holders on the back cover. To secure the cover there is a belt and brass button closure. 

You can purchase one of these writing pad covers on my etsy shop.

33 Wax Canvas Binders

I am really excited to finally be able to post about this project. A lot of blood sweat and tears went into these binders. Everything on these three ring binders is hand sewn. After the first 15 I could barely hold a the needle. 

On this project I had a chance to work with Erik from Weft and Warp, in New Gloucester Maine. Super awesome guy, he makes beautiful stuff you should check his work out. Erik made all the front pockets for this project. 

Crazy Horse & the Custers

Finished 33 hardcover copies of "Crazy Horse & the Custers" for Nine Point Publishing. 26 copies have red end sheets and are stamped with a black foil on the spine. There are 7 Hors Commerce copies with Marbled end sheet paper by Chena River Paper Marblers, in Amherst Mass, and stamped with silver foil on the spine. The covers of the book are a black stonehenge paper letterpressed by David Wolfe of Wolfe Editions in Portland Maine. 

The books are getting packed and sent to the Poet William Heyen and ArtistDeLoss McGraw for signing, while I start working on the swing lid boxes. 

Picnic Portland

Well July is flying by and the studio is in full swing. So before the month totally gets away from me, I wanted to post that August 1st I will be in Portland Maine for Picnic. I will be there with a bunch of new books as well as some cool old maps for sale. After picnic I am taking a weekend off and I will be back at the Burlington Farmers Market Saturday August 15th.
