My new blog

I'm Rhonda, and I'm a bookbinder and book artist. I started making books several years ago when I took my first bookbinding course and I haven't been able to stop. I've had classes and workshops with a number of excellent binders: Joe Landry, Susan Mills, Stephanie Dean-Moore, and Niki Moulder. I also love helping other people make books and have developed some kits that make it really easy to get started but I also offer free advice so let me know if you have any questions!

Lately, I have been focusing on historic book structures from the Medieval and Renaissance eras and I try to be as accurate as possible with certain elements of the binding process, while still modernizing other elements thus producing a durable, functional, and beautiful book. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions (or suggestions!) about my books and their bindings. I am a member of the Canadian Bookbinders and Books Artists Guild (www.cbbag.ca) and the Pacific Center for the Books Arts (www.pcba.info).
