Handmade Books

'I just remember the joy of the book, the beauty of the binding'

Maurice Sendak

Books are amazing! After seeing Marianthi Lainas' exquisite handmade photography books the dream became to be able to make my own book with my own photographs. So I decided to learn how, I ended up going 100miles away for a series of workshops at London Centre of Book Arts.

I had done crafting projects in the past and had some of the necessary equipment. I found I had some of the skills and experience needed. My embroidery and engineering might come in useful - who would have thought!!
