Leather journals handmade in Indianapolis, Indiana

As a lifelong lover of books, reading and keeping a journal, bookbinding was a natural fit for me. I started exploring the world of book arts in high school at our local library by reading how-to books and absorbing all of the artist journals I could find.
Later in college, I learned my first historical binding stitch and fell in love. I have been bookbinding ever since! Binding Bee officially started in 2008 when I opened up my Etsy shop and started selling at small craft shows around Indiana. Since then, it has grown into my full-time job, and I travel to art fairs around the Midwest and sell on Etsy. To see more details about my making process and samples of custom work, please visit my website: www.bindingbee.com
