Hello and Welcome to our Bindery!

For as long as I can remember I’ve been a paper collector, lover, buyer, enthusiast and plain paper nut. My passion for paper has evolved into a creative and challenging business making hand bound Journals, Books and Photo Albums. We are a husband and wife team and we bind each of our books and albums by hand in our studio located in the woods on Marrowstone Island near Port Townsend, Washington. We are supervised by our rescue dog Jake who is an enthusiastic and dedicated helper!

The paper we use for the pages in our books has an elegant felt finish and the beautiful look and feel of handmade paper. We hand sew our book blocks so that our books will lie open flat. They are perfect to use for drawing, writing, sketching and even doodling. And of course the pages are archival and acid-free to last for decades. For the book covers, we choose handmade papers from around the world, each unique and different from the next.

My favorite covers are the printed covers which include traditional Chiyogami papers from Japan. These papers are truly amazing pieces of art – incorporating traditional designs and manufacturing techniques, they reflect the art of Japan and Asia and are truly a treasure. For our textured paper covers we hand tear the paper to create a truly unique and interesting book cover.

Viktor and I are proud of the quality of the Watermark Bindery books. We try to be our harshest critics, and hope to delight our customers with every book we make.

If you'd like to share your thoughts or comments, we’d love to hear from you!

“Fill your paper with the breathings of your own heart." -- William Wordsworth
