Memories fade, hard drives crash, and operating systems change ... Grace Notes Press  journals, books and photo albums are a timeless way to document life & love

At Grace Notes Press ... I love handmade paper, history and the aesthetic of a well-designed book. I love making beautiful, useful things, and the process of figuring out what the thing is, whether its a journal, a list, a photographic print, or a memory album ... I am passionate about photography, writing, calligraphy, books and art as means to express what brings us joy and comfort, as well as working through hard times with courage and grace. I love to document the beauty of nature, the minutiae of daily life, the expansiveness that travel offers, the pomp of special celebrations, the love of friends and family ... my expertise is design and bookbinding. I am Beth Rose, the creative catalyst behind Grace Notes Press. I combine elegant design and modern computer techniques with old-world bookbinding methods and beautiful papers from around the world. The intersection of love, passion and expertise is Grace Notes Pressa unique expression and approach to documenting life & love.
