About PeskyCatPapercraft

Sales 52
On Etsy since 2015

A bibliophile and a rather pesky cat teamed up.

...And by 'teamed up,' I mean 'he constantly steals my thread while I'm trying to work.'

In January of 2015, a dear friend of mine left for Germany for a year. As a parting gift, I made him a blank journal with a German flag on the cover for him to write his memories in. That sloppy, not so impressive (but well intentioned) gift started me on the path of bookbinding. Since then, I've fallen in love with the craft and haven't looked back since.

My grey tabby Loki is a constant pest while I'm trying to work, though. He demands on jumping in my lap, attacking my string, or sneaking bites of my leather hides. Once, he upturned my yarn basket and unraveled every single skein. He has a weird fascination with opening the cabinets and hiding in them until his sister walks by. Then he jumps out of them and attacks her like a furry assassin. I can never bring myself to stay mad at him despite his mischievous nature. So instead, I named the brand after him.

Seemed fitting.

Welcome to Pesky Cat Papercraft, where good stories come in great covers! Shouldn't the exterior of a book should be just as enchanting as the tale it tells? I think so, anyway!

I specialize in rebinding books into hardback leather covers that are both more protective and more aesthetically pleasing. Each book is bound by hand using contemporary binding techniques, and each cover is designed specifically for the story in question. If you would like to turn your favorite novel into something truly special, drop me a message. We'll work together to achieve your vision.
