Books bring people together.

The Wild Little Goose workshop started in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts in 2008:

a desk.
some paper.
some glue.
good tunes.
lots of tea.

I began making blank journals and selling them in local craft shows, and to friends and family as gifts. Eventually, word spread, and it was time to branch out in to the world wide web- an international market! Soon after, I moved to Asheville, NC, and began an incredible book restoration apprenticeship with Dea Sasso and the Light of Day Bindery.

Over the past three years, I have improved my book structures and tightened ship a bit, as well as learned some handy new skills, such as how to make a box and how to make a letterpress print. I am now well versed in the arts of book (and bible) repair and restoration, and can create new cases for old, broken - but well loved- books.

My current production of journals, prints, and boxes happens in the Light of Day studio, as well as in my home studio and at Asheville Bookworks (thanks to their wonderful presses). The tea and tunes are never far from the workbench. I am always open to custom work, including repair, and would love to hear from anyone who comes across my shop.

Shop policies

Every book found here has been made by hand with love in my studio. A traditional french style sewing on tapes was used for the binding of the text blocks, and the books have been assembled using PVA glue and recycled book covers and papers.

The images and patterns on the covers found me in various places along the way, and lit a small fire in my heart. My hope is that they may resonate with others as friendly gatekeepers to the pages inside.

Whenever possible, I have used recycled or found materials in creating these books, and therefore each one will be a one-of-a-kind piece. They have been made with the intention of personal use as journals, notebooks, list-making aides, cookbooks, dream logs, sketchbooks, and big open spaces for expression.
