My life in Bookbinding
I decided to go to library school. While I was working toward my MLIS degree, I discovered that there were some bookbinding classes offered in the evenings, in the basement of the University's library. They were non-credit courses that could be included on my official transcript, and I thought that was just spectacular. So I enrolled. I did one term of bookbinding. Then another, then another. I finished my MLIS and since then, I have spent much more time bookbinding than I have directly in the field of librarianship.
I really enjoy making books and the process of designing books and working out new ideas. I have been bookbinding for twenty years now, and I still feel like I'm only beginning to scratch the surface of bookbinding knowledge. I marvel at the work of master binders around the world and can only imagine someday creating at their level. As I work toward that goal, I continue to learn as much as I can about all facets of the craft. It is an enjoyable journey, knowing that I am doing what I love every day.
