About

Thanks to ETSY and my lovely customers, I get to make beautiful books everyday, something I love.

Hello there,

I’m Moneeza, a book artist based in the little village of Thornton in Bronte country, West Yorkshire, England. I've always been a creative person and interested in making things by hand. I used to daydream about doing something creative for a living; I guess I day dreamed long enough for it to become a reality.

My love of photography led me to making journals and photo albums to document my travels in the early 90's when I worked as a product designer for a family run handicrafts business which enabled me to travel through South Asia and beyond sourcing handmade crafts, vintage textiles and rugs. It was during this enriching period in my life that I was drawn to the art of bookbinding which I have since been exploring as an art form. I am self-taught, constantly learning and full of ideas for more books than I probably have time to make. My work is heavily influenced by my South Asian and English heritage, I like to create books that look like they have been found in a dusty old attic and have a great story inside them waiting to be read.

I see the books that leave my bindery as keepsakes, to display in your home, fill up with real photographs or memories, artwork or ramblings. Books to love a while before they are passed on to their next guardian.

In 2018 my mother and aunt joined Lotus Blu to help during busy wedding season, these extra pair of hands have allowed me to work freely on new designs and improve the overall experience of buying a handcrafted book from us.
