I love to experiment with paper, colors and bindings and try to give a modern and clever turn to traditional styles.

All my books are designed to hold up well to daily use, and to last for a long time. The materials and glues used are of archival quality, and the binding techniques used are selected to insure that the books open, and close, stand on the shelf or being carried around in your bag with as few stress on the integral parts of the binding as possible.
Books with similar binding techniques have survived for more than 500, in some cases 2000 years.

My current turnaround time for small items like CD/DVD cases is one weekend. For larger items like bound books it is 2-3 weekends. (I only get to workshop on weekends.)
