About

Beautiful stationery handmade in Cornwall

I began bookbinding over 12 years ago when, struggling to find a suitable book to use as a holiday journal, I decided I would have to learn how to make my own. All these years and many hundreds of books later, I still love the craft of folding, stitching, gluing and binding a new book. Additionally I make boxes from millboard, including slip cases, pen pots, pencil boxes, gift boxes and Solanders.

I cover my books and boxes with specialist papers, including Japanese Chiyogami, hand marbled, Italian printed, old maps and sheet music. Many of my books are unique as I rarely make the same one twice. A full range of items will soon be available in my Etsy store.

Based in Cornwall on the Lizard peninsula, I offer a range of workshops aimed at beginners or those wanting to refresh their bookbinding skills. Details of upcoming courses are posted on my website www.booksnboxes.co.uk. I also accept commissions to restore or rebind books with cloth bindings. Please contact me if you have a particular project in mind.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

I can fulfil special requests as long as I have the paper in stock, or can get hold of it from my suppliers. Some papers might be one offs and not available on repeat. You can also supply your own cover paper.

I can also use maps for covering books and boxes. I have a large collection of old maps which cover many areas of the UK, plus a selection of foreign maps and world atlases. I am always happy to check to see if I have a map of a particular location, so please do not hesitate to contact me. If I don't have the relevant map you can supply your own.

Please contact me to discuss your options.
