About

Books in my Blood

Bear Bones opened as Sycamore Book Arts in 2010, an outlet for personal experiments in bookbinding and altered books. It exists now as a place to showcase my work in handbound journals and artist books.

Everything in the shop is handmade by me, Allison. I started bookbinding under the tutelage of Mike Kaylor in the Rose O'Neill Literary House print shop in Chestertown, Maryland. Since then I have also worked in the bindery at the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore, and now work as a book repair technician at the Maryland Institute College of Art where I get to examine a wide variety of antique bindings and artist books.

I am enthusiastic about commissions and custom orders and have a wide portfolio of wedding guest books. Ask if you would like to see any examples.

Bear Bones is currently expanding to take part in local art markets. Come see me if you're in Baltimore!

Thanks for visiting,
Allison

    By day I work in book repair at the Maryland Institute College of Art, by night I create my own works of art - journals, sketchbooks, altered books and artist books. Reading, whiskey, and a grumpy old cat named Pablo occupy the rest of my time.
