Searching for handmade books with covers from old wood ?
Welcome to the world of books with wooden memory then. Here, really old wood and recycled paper transformed and bound together - create a special space for your words, images, or sketches.
You can find also other unique objects created from pieces of old furniture or local wood and most recently also vintage pieces that we do not resist to get when searching for material for our work.

For the book covers we use pieces of damaged, antique furniture that have already served for generations and are destined to be burned or demolished.

It is mostly Hana who personalizes the covers with carvings or completes it with authentic accents. Each cover is unique and one of a kind. .
All books she binds using mostly recycled paper as re-utilization is base of Lacuna's philosophy.

Rúben enjoys creating perfectly crafted, functional pieces like boxes or serving trays out of local wood or fragments of old wood.

Teresa is most recent but crucial help. She learned fast how to cut the sheets of paper and binds them securely into the wooden covers. She is the organized mind in the creative whirl!

Lacuna work is now collaborating with residents of local organization that helps homeless and socially fragile people. Some of our wooden covers are now being sanded with care and dedication by these men with troubled life history.
