Announcement   Journals make great graduation gifts!

In the summer of 2016 I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel to Japan to be on a *reality TV show* where I visited the factory that I buy my paper from, and learned to make paper! You can read about it here: http://www.bit.ly/JapanShow1

About

Ruth Bleakley's handmade books help you preserve your memories and breathe new life into the ancient art of bookbinding.

My favorite material to create things with is PAPER, including handmade Japanese papers, unusual maps and colorful vintage papers. Some people spend too much on restaurants, others on clothing, I spend far too much on acquiring the most massive stash of decorative papers possible. I'm glad that the art of bookbinding allows me to showcase and share my favorites with you!

This summer I had the thrilling once-in-a-lifetime experience of winning a free trip to Japan to be on a reality TV show about Japanese Papermaking! You can read about it here: http://www.bit.ly/JapanShow1
