My journey to the amazing art of bookbinding...

TeoStudio is a book bindery specialized in luxury leather journals, old style bindings and lockable diaries. My studio is located in the beautiful city of Évora, Portugal , where I create surrounded by nature and history. My love for arts and crafts has been with me since I can remember. I grew up in a family of artists, surrounded by paintings and books.

I went to the university to study the conservation of medieval paintings and from there on, I got my Master in visual arts. I like to think of myself as an artist, as I’m passionate about art in many different forms and disciplines. It was in 2005 that I really discovered the universe of bookbinding and soon after, I dedicated myself to it completely. It is what truly makes me happy, to get up every day thinking on the beautiful books I will create.

My bookbinding style is influenced by the ephemeral quality of objects surrounding us and their passage through time. I love to work with old leather that shows the marks of a previous life, I also love to use in my bindings all kind of pieces with history that I collect. I am passionate about collecting art, books, historic materials and some other oddities... I love traveling and discovering flea markets all over the world.

At the moment I am trying to take a step forward and explore new sides of bookbinding - publishing, fine binding, papermaking and book arts. I also enjoy doing collaborations for artist books, theater or movie props and any kind of art project that would challenge my creativity so if you're interested, please drop me a line!

Thank you for for stopping by, I hope you will enjoy :)

Additional policies and FAQs
★ Please consider that possible irregularities in the execution of items are considered a value of handmade works of art.

★ Leather is an uneven material by its nature. Its surface may have particularities that should be seen as signs of authenticity or of the manufacturing process. I generally treat leather for enhanced elasticity, resistance, surface appearance. These products (wax, oil, silicone) may have a specific smell in the beginning that generally vanishes with time.

★ I do my best to take realistic pictures, using daylight and computer processing so the photos are as similar as possible to the reality. However, it is obvious that slight differences will still exist.
