Welcome to Dakini Bookbinding. I specialise in creating unique, unusual handcrafted books made with the finest papers & fabrics collected from around the world.

I began making books after the birth of my beautiful daughter in October 1998. My goal was to stay at home with her for a couple of years... 13 years and many many many books later I am still going strong, expanding my range as I learn new techniques.

I have a passion for beautiful paper, fabrics & playing with colours & textures.

Our lounge room has been turned into a workshop, with projects continually on the go, spilling off the table and into the corners of the room.

I hope you enjoy using your special book as much as I enjoyed creating it.
