I can turn your writing into a limited edition, custom, hand bound book. Up to 25 books can be custom made using traditional bookbinding techniques and the finest materials and papers. Your poetry, stories, journals, or more can be turned into a book for gift giving or preservation.
Please message me to start to conversation regarding your books and your needs.
Books can be made in any size (8.5" x 5.5" is a common size) and a variety of materials or techniques, including soft cover or hardbound. Costs for materials you may choose, or extras such as typing or photo editing will be added to the final cost. Once we determine your needs I will create a custom listing specifically for your project.
The length of time necessary to make your books will vary depending on method, quantity, and availability of materials. If you have a date or occasion that you need to have them please let me know right away.
Costs to ship large quantities, long distances, or heavy orders will be considered in the final cost.

    The book is lovely, and a terrific way to keep the cards. LouJean was very responsive. Our need was slightly different and she worked with me to create exactly the right design. We are very pleased.

    The books were absolutely gorgeous and well-crafted, and are a perfect way to store and read all of the cards from our wedding.
