(PLEASE NOTE: The price quoted is an average for a cloth-bound memory book with a matching protective box. Prices vary depending on style, size, and materials. Simple boxes can cost much less. More elaborate wooden books can cost more. Shipping fees also may vary.)

I welcome the opportunity to design and make custom books and boxes to meet your own needs and budget. I am well-versed in a variety of book and box structures and can suggest ideas for your projects.

These photos show examples of my work. Click on one of the small images on the right of the featured photo to enlarge it. Click on it again to make it even larger.

The montage in the first image includes several examples of my custom boxes and of what I can do with windows and enclosures in wooden book covers. All are ideal for showcasing personal memorabilia. Also check out the Wooden Books section of my shop.

The first book in the montage is part of the Special Collections Libraries at the University of Arizona and University of Louisville. It has been accepted into juried exhibitions at galleries in Denver and Portland, OR. More information about this limited edition can be found at http://tiny.cc/wonderfull

The two books with colorful fabric covers pictured on the right contain images provided by the customers adapted to make a child's personalized "ABC" book. One has a spiral binding concealed behind a stiff spine and is paired with a matching slip case. Another is bound with a Japanese stab binding and is housed in a clam shell box. Both of these use book cloth made from fabric selected by the customers.

The last image on the right is a book I was commissioned to make for a company's "Founder's Day". Employees designed individual pages that I bound with leather and book cloth. The book is housed in a matching drop spine box.

I especially enjoy making boxes. I can design just about anything you can imagine tailored to hold or display your treasures. I offer custom-made slip cases or drop spine boxes to protect valuable book collections. I use heavy duty archival binder's board for the structures and cover them with everything from cloth to hand-decorated paper.

Please contact to discuss design and pricing for your own special book or box, and for international shipping rates.
