Thank you very much, for coming and looking at my books. I have loved the feel of books since I was very young, and have been repairing old books and making my own for the last forty years, or so. I am a traditional craftsman. All of the books I make have hand-sewn (Smyth-sewn) bindings, sewn in signatures. I am hard on the books that I make for myself, so the ones I make for my store are very durable. I delight in all the possibilities for bookmaking offered by different materials: leather, wood, cloth, different papers. All of my books will be a little hard for me to sell, because I love so much to handle them, to feel the leather or the wood, to flip the pages and feel the quality of the binding. I hope that you will love them just as much.
