Giving Forgotten Books a New Life
I’ve been crafting since I was old enough to hold a pair of safety scissors—as a child I was constantly making things with paper, fabric, yarn, and whatever else I could get my hands on. I began “bookmaking” at an early age—in preschool I loved to make folded construction paper books held together with staples, which I would then fill with my own illustrated stories.
My more recent foray into bookbinding began shortly after I graduated from college. I learned to bind books from a good friend who makes all of her own sketchbooks. Once I made a sketchbook of my own I was hooked! I love the binding process as well as the hunt for fun vintage books to recycle into new ones. I don’t go through sketchbooks very quickly myself, but I love binding books, so I started making books to sell on Etsy.
