Announcement   Leather journals, sketchbooks and more in antique designs. All of the leather journals in this shop are made by me in my small but exquisite bookbinding studio, using antique, recycled and upcycled leathers.

Inspiration for my books comes from literature, antique and vintage materials, and from observing the world in my travels abroad to far-flung places.

About

Journals for Writers, Artists, Thinkers, and Dreamers

I started out as a writer and then discovered bookbinding, which seems like a good marriage.

I've been making handbound books since 2004, peering into dusty book archives and down dark alleyways, studying bookbinding practices in Italy, Great Britain, Germany, Spain, and in other interesting, and sometimes unlikely, places.

I love a good theme, and work best when I think of things in a thematic way. So in my mind, I think of Moon and Hare as a tiny little shop in a quiet, cobble-stoned side street, maybe somewhere in Paris, maybe somewhere around Charing Cross in London, or maybe nowhere in particular. It's sometime in the early 20th century, and a little bell tinkles over the door as you walk into the shop.

Inside, as you stroll around, browsing the shelves, you will discover vaguely antique journals and sketchbooks, and little paper things. It's all very quiet and peaceful and slightly eccentric (as a good bookstore should be). And if you look over there, behind the counter, that's me, stitching away on a book.

To make the books for my little shop, I start by going through my collection of antique, vintage, and reclaimed leather and other materials. Many of my books are made from these materials -- the under-and-over loved, the beautifully worn. Things full of history, character, and mysteriousness. I make these books for you: the writers, artists, ponderers, wanderers, thinkers and dreamers of the world.
