I am thrilled to announce this collaborative effort project between me and my mom, the bookbinder. We have created these handbound, coptic stitched books with letterpressed signatures and envelopes interleaved within. This one was made especially for Henry whose announcement you may remember in the same style, personalized with antique wood type and vintage animal illustrations.
We love these books for their clever ability to hold not just photos or the written word, but also nearly any sort of keepsake neatly tucked away – allowing a creative and organized way of keeping all of your memorabilia in one place.

Special thanks to Henry’s wonderful mom, Jenny, who gave me the creative freedom to come up with such a thing.
