Bookbinding

A trip to Japan in the early 1980s exposed me to their culture of bookbinding and involvement in paper crafts. Everyone created objects – all ages, boys and girls. I was inspired.

On my return to Australia I attended the Bookbinding and Restoration TAFE course. I have continued to study this wonderful and ancient craft.

My art background as a painter has meant that I love to explore decorative effects with leather covers and endpapers. Some custom bookbinding has allowed unusual formats and cover treatment. My Designer Books and journals reflect this.

I now concentrate on making A5 and A6 journals plus greeting cards. These are for sale so please contact Kevin on – kevin@amazingpaper.com.au or me for details. We can send you a PDF of current journals and greeting cards – am able to occasionally customise a journal.

Enquiries are welcome.
