About

A reliquary for old books

I started collecting books about ten years ago. The books seemed to come alive when I began to make cuts with the illustrations.
I have worked for many years on the technique and the variety of styles that have given my books a new life.
Each book almost speaks to me, I read them, and feel them and begin the repairs. some beg to be cut, others folded, and some ask for both.
I began creating special boxes about 2 years ago. Now each book is sent off to it's new owner with a special box made with the remaining papers.
When I am not in my shop, you can find me in old book stores,
scouring the internet, and even checking trashcans for old books that need a new life.
If you are interested in purchasing an altered book for your home, the price range for
custom work is 200.00 and up. and takes about two weeks to complete.
