About

Each Beetlelady Book is made by by a single bookbinder, me. My interest in the book arts began when I took my first class in bookbinding in 2001. Since then, a combination of self-teaching and classes have allowed me to explore many bookbinding techniques and transformed bookbinding from something I dabbled in during my free time into a full-fledged passion.

No machinery is used in the binding. I assemble each book entirely by hand, using a set of simple tools. This results in durable one of a kind books, perfect for journaling, sketching, note-taking, and more.

I hope you will enjoy using my books as much as I enjoyed making them!

What's in a name?
Beetlelady Books gets its name from my principal career, Entomology. I am currently a Ph.D. student in the Department of Entomology at Michigan State University, studying the biodiversity of tropical bark beetles. My husband's job brought us back to California, where I am lucky enough to be completing my dissertation research at the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. To learn more about me and my interest in tiny beetles, visit my website at www.beetlelady.com.
