About BoundToHelp

Sales 245
On Etsy since 2017

Welcome to Bound to Help!

I specialize in reinvigorating old hardcover books by removing (and recycling) their original contents and inserting new blocks of pages. This practice expands the history of older books to include new possibilities for creativity and record-keeping, and it means I can customize notebooks to suit individual writers' and artists' needs. Each book's new pages can be of different colors, shapes, and weights, can include sections of maps or wallpaper, and can incorporate some of the original pages alongside the new paper.

I am also committed to an artistic practice that engages actively with broader social and literary contexts. For this reason, in purchasing a book from Bound To Help you will not only receive a beautiful and functional book but also contribute to a non-profit whose focus is on protecting civil rights and liberties and/or supporting historically-marginalized communities of writers and artists.
