Bound By Hand
About Bound By Hand
Susan Green is an artisan bookbinder who enjoys working with fine leathers, hand marbled papers and letting the beauty of materials speak for themselves. Mostly working to commission (although with a Ready To Ship Collection that's a popular gift destination at Christmas time), she makes personalised Wedding Guest Books, Memory Books, Artist's Sketchbooks and Journals. Most often she uses the 15th century Longstitch with Linkstitch binding style, for its flexibility, strength and paired down beauty. Susan also designs & produces dummies for graphic design studios, print companies, etc. Susan teaches short course bookbinding courses in Dorset.
