    Oh, thank you, Ali! This is just what I needed for my lunchtime break….bookish eye candy and lots of new bunny trails to follow.

    Thank you for these recommendations – they all look worth following. I happily direct you to Kaija from Finland over at and her instagram site of the same name. She does such fine bookbinding with standard finishes as well as ones where she’s added vintage lace and other vintage items. She also makes the most extraordinary mixed media and jewelry pieces with old photographs and vintage this and that, and writes poetry as well! She’s very much the perfectionist with clean line aesthetics which is part of what makes her books so beautiful. Needless to say, I’m a bit in love with her and what she makes which she sells through her Etsy shop.

    Don’t worry, I love you and what you make too, though very different from Kaija’s work. 😉
