About

photographer, bookbinder, and paper marbling artist

I'm a photographer, bookbinder, and marbling artist. I took up marbling to keep myself occupied and happy during the frigid Boston winters, and I started creating handmade journals, folios, and cards to put the marbled papers to good use. After posting a few samples on Instagram, friends started asking me where and when they could buy my journals ... and so my Etsy store was born!

I'm originally from the UK, but have been based in Jamaica Plain (Boston) for ten years. In the summer you can find me photographing weddings, sailing, and scuba diving. In the winter I hunker down in my marbling studio (a bright corner of our icy cold basement) or at my bookbinding table in the dining room.

You can follow my #adventuresinmarbling on Instagram @katemcelwee - and maybe find a few photos of my adorable labradors too.

Frequently asked questions
Why are some journals priced differently, for the same size?

Some journals have additional elements such as bookmarks and headbands/endbands. These items require additional time to bind to the journals, so the price reflects this.

Can I add a bookmark/headband/endband to a journal?

Unfortunately, I am unable to add bookmarks, headbands, or endbands to existing books, as these items can only be added before the book is fully bound. However, you are welcome to order a custom item with any of these elements! You will need to select a print - please contact me for more info.

Custom and personalized orders

I love to work with my customers to create beautiful custom books! You will need to select a marbled print, and item type, then we can customize it to fit your needs.
