Maintaining the high quality traditions of handmade books of the past is important to me. In recent years, I have replaced handmade paper with hand-woven and vintage textiles. These textiles are innately tactile and relatable: Fabric pages are not flat and completely blank. Each stitch adds texture and dimension. The fabric moves and molds itself in the hands of the reader.
