Sonya Sheats

Bookbinding is a timeless & delicate artform. I first learned just the most basic instincts of binding books when I was studying abroad in Florence and there really was no better place to do so. In Florence I was privy to some of the most classic example of bindings in the early bibles designed by Monks. I can think of nothing more fascinating then seeing the complexities of all their biblical manifestations bound individually into a living book literally overflowing with the souls that labored over them. Sonya Sheets has some charming binding, including some exposed binds which are some of my favorite. The exoskeleton of books. You can look at all of her lovely designs here Sonya Sheats.
