My name is Barbara, and I'm a bookbinder, writer, bookworm, and sole maker of all the items in my shop, Moon and Hare.
I've been making hand bound books since 2004, peering into dusty book archives and down dark alleyways, studying ancient bookbinding practices in Italy, Great Britain, Germany, and Spain.
I use natural leather with raw edges, brands, scars, and other natural aspects, and create my books using designs that date back to the Middle Ages. This gives the books a one-of-a-kind, old-world look and feel.
I've always been drawn to handcrafted items that have a beautiful simplicity, and my focus is on making books that are beautifully simple, well crafted, and a pleasure for you to write in.
