Katie is such a pleasure to work with! I waited last minute for a birthday gift for my fiancé, and it was so worth the wait! I purchased the leather journal for Instagram photos, wrote a nice note in the front, and filled half of the book with pictures. Such an amazing gift that will allow my fiancé to continue to fill it! If you are on the fence, whether it is price or the idea in general, jump on this. I do not doubt for a second Katie's talent and love for each book she creates. It is so apparent! Thanks, Katie, for a wonderful gift, and thank you for being so fun to work with. The world needs more of you!

I ordered this leather book for my fiance for her wedding gift. It shipped super quick!! the work on this book was impeccable! They were very easy to work with and even gave me a couple extra sheets of paper to play around with for different adhesives. Even added a little personal message! i highly recommend ordering anything from this shop!

Several of the books I made with a local fiber artist were selected for the Best of Tennessee Craft Exhibition! The book on the right will be sent to the Reece Museum in Johnson City, TN for the exhibit. And the book on the left is available in my shop.

I just finished a brand new batch of handbound notebooks. Each one is unique, and many of the covers feature my own marbled papers and paste papers.

I was so excited to see that Etsy featured my mini handbound journal on their Instagram account today. This little book has a teal suede cover and letterpress printed pages with lovely lace patterns.

About

linenlaid&felt handmade books

Hello! I’m Katie Gonzalez, a bookbinder creating meaningful handmade books every day in Nashville, Tennessee.

When my books leave my studio, their journey has just begun. I've folded the pages, crafted the covers, and stitched the binding. They are already works of art, but not yet complete. My leather journals, sketchbooks, and photo albums are meant to be filled — with congratulatory notes from wedding guests, records of a baby's first words, or photos from a cross-country road trip.

I founded linenlaid&felt in 2010 to turn my passion for book arts, papermaking, and paper marbling into a full-time profession. This includes teaching bookbinding classes, in which I show students how to make books and encourage them to fill their creations in ways that enrich daily life. You can see (and share) great examples of how books are put to use by browsing the hashtag #myusedbook on Instagram.

I first studied book arts in Cortona, Italy, in summer 2006, where the tradition of the craft was instilled into my work. I blend those principles with the design, printmaking, painting, and photography I learned while earning a graphic design degree from the University of Georgia.
