Hand Made Leather Journals, Wedding Guest Books, Memory Books & Artist's Sketchbooks.

Hello! I'm Susan Green and I'm a professional bookbinder. I started making my own notebooks in 2008 to feed my stationery addiction. I am self-taught and passionately believe that anyone can learn to make anything, and that practice makes perfect. Fast forward several years and now I enjoy making books for a living, day in day out, from my studio in Dorset.

I'm lucky enough to be in a studio next to a graphic design agency, so I pick up a lot about design, colour and communication from them. I also get to take my three rescue greyhounds to work!

I also teach bookbinding, running evening classes for adults twice a year in Dorset, which I love.

Recently I've enjoyed working with a paper marbler, a pr & marketing agency, print companies and lots of people just like you who would like a nice book to write, draw, stick and sketch.

I specialise in Longstitch with Linkstitch leather books that are strong, flexible, beautiful and designed to last a lifetime. I love to work on bespoke orders for personalised books - please get in touch, I'd love to chat.
