Heather Bain 2012

I spent the last two years in Boston at the North Bennet Street School learning hand bookbinding and book repair. I love creating beautiful but functional books, using high-quality materials and durable structures. I am particularly attracted to historical structures, and I try to incorporate them into my work and combine them with modern techniques. Through workshops at school, I became interested in paper marbling, and now I make most of my own marbled paper and love to experiment with pictorial designs, especially dragons! I also do conservation and repair work; few things make me happier than fixing a badly damaged book so it can be used again.
