Announcement    Congratulations on finding my teeny tiny Etsy store!! My books are intended for people who love the scratch of pen/cil on paper and appreciate the tactile satisfaction of high quality materials. All of my books are created in a smoke-free/pet-free home.

I also make custom orders- guest books, albums, planners, exposed spine sketch books. Feel free to message me if you have specific requests for colors/patterns. Unfortunately, I am not trained in restoring/rebinding antique books; you need a college degree to do that right. Thanks for reading this and thanks visiting my store!

About

Paper Love

I have been stitching and binding books for 8 years now, ever since my first bookbinding class at San Francisco Center for the Book. Sometimes I feel like a dinosaur in a world of electronic devices, but the scratch of pen on paper will always be a satisfying, self-affirming action for me.

My shop is small because each book takes over 1 hour to make (again: DINOSAUR), plus I have multiple jobs. I use mostly high quality, acid free materials (except for my upcycled books), and I only bind books when I'm in a good mood because otherwise I tend to make mistakes and ruin expensive materials. These books are built to last- they travel all over the world in various backpacks and manage to stay in one piece.

I also make custom orders- guest books, albums, planners, exposed spine sketch books. Feel free to message me if you have specific requests for colors/patterns. Unfortunately, I am not trained in restoring/rebinding antique books; you need a college degree to do that right. Thanks for reading this and thanks visiting my store!
