Gabby Cooksey's Profile

About

I bind books for the imagination and craft.

Bound by Cooksey is the Washington, USA based bookbinding studio of artist and craftsmen Gabby Cooksey.

I design books in a peculiar and unexpected way that makes it enticing to hold/open. I think of my books as art that you can use. I hope other people feel this too when they interact with my work. I want them to pick my books up and wonder, “What the heck??” in the nicest way possible. I sometimes
add hidden items, bones, feathers, teeth, and odd leather to my bindings because I want people to get close up and hold it.

When I'm not binding books I taking my shop dog, Mac, for a walk, mountain biking, reading, gardening and playing games.

My instagram is @boundbycooksey if you want to see…
