About me

In the 1980s I taught throughout England and worked from my studio in Sussex before returning to Ohio in 1990. Now based in Cincinnati, I travel often to care for collections and to teach. I have many original and preserved bindings held in private, public and academic libraries. Miniatures are a particular interest of mine. At the most recent meeting of the Miniature Book Society, I received the Norman W. Forgue Award, which was presented for "ongoing work as a conservator, bookbinder, and education facilitator, as well as an ongoing professional example as a member of the world of the miniature book." 


I have had three full-size books published: 

  • The Essential Guide to Making Handmade Books
  • LARKSPUR PRESS: Forty Years of Making Letterpress Books in a Rural Kentucky Community 
  • The Flowing Spine: A Bookbinding Project Book
