I'd like to share a wonderful new #instagram account with you.
@lizziemade_books based in rural England, makes the most exquisite, handmade books the old fashioned way - from scratch using age-old tools and long honed skills. One photograph doesn't do her work justice so please scan through the photos on this post which shows some of the time-consuming, handmade processes each unique book goes through.
Painstakingly, and with great care and craftsmanship, Lizzie expertly brings paper, thread and bookbinding accoutrements together in order to produce something truly beautiful and unique.
Beavering away in her studio, @lizziemade_books works alongside her clients to produce something personal and unique for every occasion. Her Wedding Guest books are legendary and all one -off personalised creations using a variety of bookbinding materials.
Her range includes, handmade guest books,
journals, sketchbook, baby books etc.
The thing is...
Lizzie is an independent, highly skilled artisan, quietly working away and not necessarily 'shouting' about her wonderful craftsmanship.
So I'm shouting on her behalf because I own some of her wonderful creations, I've seen the care and attention to detail in every fold of paper and neatly stitched thread. Her work needs to be seen, loved, held, cherished and above all - owned.
Go say hi to her and whist you're on her page- hit the follow button. #handmade#craftmanship#books#bookstagram#bookbinding#leather#leatherboundbooks#leatherbound#christmas#christmaspresent#sketchbook#weddingbook#guestbook
