Melissa Rutherfoord's Profile

About

My name is Melissa Rutherfoord, and I am a bookbinder living in Chicago. I've always had a fascination with books and book structure, especially handmade books created before the invention of the printing press. With my work, I try to bring back an old world style of bookbinding, while combining it with a more contemporary aesthetic. Thanks for looking at my shop, and allowing me to share my passion for books with you!
