aBout aBoBoBook

Welcome to aBoBoBook ...

I make blank and bespoke books using coptic-binding, stab-binding, cross-stitch binding (aka, secret belgian binding), and tacket binding.

My husband Rick makes precisionist photographic images of aging industrial, structural, and everyday details, which are often in a state of decay, neglect, repurpose, or refurbishment.

Shop members

  • Joni Herren Graves

    Owner, Designer, Bookbinder

    Joni loves creating bespoke books with clients — it keeps things fresh and interesting. She's happy when she has new ideas for her books and is currently obsessed with including pockets. She often collaborates with her photographer husband Rick.

  • Rick Graves

    Photographer, Printer, Owner

    Rick learned to make pictures from his father, a WWII Navy photographer. With formal training in the performing arts, it’s not surprising that he’s interested in how the movement of light and form play together to create motion and emotion.

  • Allie-the-Tripawd-Dog

    Dog

    Allie joined us in April 2021, when she was about a year old. She's proving to be a great greeter and our in-person customers love her. So do we!

  • Timber-the-Cat

    Cat

    Timber fell into our lives in 2019 and the studio hasn't been the same since. He finds many things fascinating, including lounging on the photo printer and tangling with bookbinding thread.

  • The Late Parker

    Dog

    Parker joined the studio in November, 2017, when he was six years old, and died in March 2021. He is sorely missed.

  • The Late Gym

    Dog

    BoBo's littermate, Gym-the-Dog, died in September 2017, and he is sorely missed.

  • The Late Alger Hiss

    Cat

    Alger died in February 2017, and we miss his curiosity and keen eye for detail.

  • The Late BoBo

    Dog

    The shop’s name is an homage to our beloved dog BoBo, who died in 2014 at about the time that this (ad)venture began.
