My handmade books

For many years I enjoyed binding books as a hobby. My teacher was Rosemary Greager from whom I learnt a number of different binding styles as well as book repair. The first four photos were books exhibited at a handmade book exhibition at Toi Poneke community art gallery in Wellington in 2010.
