Feel free to contact me with any inquiries regarding your bookbinding project. For a one-of-a-kind binding at least 2-months lead time is preferred. However some projects, such as boxes, can often be completed in a shorter time frame. Lead time for edition work is determined on an individual basis.
Please include any details regarding design, materials, budget, and deadline. Not sure what style you want? Check out my services
to help you determine which book structure might be best for your project.
I am also available for hire to teach workshops at your institution or organization. Check out my teaching catalog
for some options. If you are interested in another binding topic or technique that is not listed, please contact me with your inquiry and we can discuss the possibilities.
I first discovered my love for bookbinding during my undergraduate studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. This initial exposure to bookbinding created a desire to cultivate a deeper understanding of the craft. In 2010, I moved to Boston to attend the full-time bookbinding program at North Bennet Street School. During this time, I received training in both historical and contemporary bookbinding techniques.
Before becoming a bookbinder, my main medium of choice was fiber. Eventually my love of fiber and bookbinding merged to develop the embroidered leather design bindings that I make for clients and to exhibit.
After living in Boston for 12 years, my husband and two cats have relocated to Austin.
At Herringbone Bindery, I combine my education in bookbinding with a background in art to craft unique objects which satisfy my client's ideas and concerns. Each commission is approached with thoughtful research and planning in order to provide an efficient service in regards to time, materials, and cost. I offer a wide range of bookbinding services from one-of-kind handcrafted items to multiple editions.
I believe in working with traditional techniques and materials, yet engaging new ideas and skills to craft quality products. I also see the importance in promoting the history of bookbinding by educating my clients, aiding their understanding of the craft and assembly timeframes.
In 2022, Herringbone Bindery celebrates 10 Years of crafting custom bindings and boxes. My work has been exhibited worldwide and resides in 6 institutions and several private collections.
