Emerson Bindery's Elegant Books

One of the things that really drew me to papermaking was my love of books. So I'm always on the lookout for handmade books of exceptional quality. I found some recently in this wonderful little shop owned by a perfectionistic bookmaker named Beth. When it comes to bookbinding being a perfectionist is a good thing!

Beth says, "I enjoy custom orders and working with my customers to create a book they'll fall in love with! I've worked with Grammy award winning rock band, The Fray, to create a backstage guest book for their 2009 summer tour. I have also worked with The Arnold Grummer Company to design an accordion book project using handmade papers and recycled CDs for the covers."

This multi-talented artist also plays in the clay and makes some lovely polymer pendants.
