Sonya's Profile

About

Hello there. I live in Napoleons, near Ballarat, in the southeastern part of Australia.

I am a bookbinder, working out of the Old School bindery in Napoleons, using manual techniques and traditional skills. I love paper, linen and leather, and the tangible lifelong companionship and legacy of a hand bound book.

Whilst the majority of my day is spent on commission binds and book repair and restoration, I often have little treasures available for sale, and you will find them here. I have begun to make PaperPlay kits too, as a gentle introduction to the skills used by a bookbinder.

I am dedicated to my rare trade, and to the principle of a life lived simply.
