    About

    Handmade books, tools, and paper- all in one place.

    For 5 years, I worked at Hatch Show Print a historic letterpress poster print shop in my hometown of Nashville, TN where I cut my teeth on ink, and wood type. During that time I opened my own Etsy store (www.tomboy.etsy.com) to sell my own prints and handbound books. In May 2014 I received an MFA in Book Arts at the Center for the Book at the University of Iowa in Iowa City and now I own and operate Crowing Hens Bindery in Nashville, TN where I make and sell luxury blank books, boutique tools, and decorative papers, which can be purchased here: www.crowinghensbindery.com

    After more than 3 years in the making, Crowing Hens Bindery, crowinghensbindery.com, opened in the summer of 2014. At Crowing Hens Bindery we believe that there is no substitute for quality handmade products, be they books, tools, or papers. When we design journals, notebooks, and account books we build them to last. We use binding techniques that focus on the needs of a writer- books that are designed to be written in after they are bound. We implement bookbinding structures that have been developed throughout history to accommodate these unique demands to ensure that our books are a pleasure to use, and that they last for generations.

    As a Nashville-based private business, we do our best to honor the heritage of art and fine craft that saturates our community and region. By providing quality handmade products made from the best materials available and using sound binding techniques, we aspire to create beautiful, useful products that become a part of your everyday life.
