About Beth

I'm a designer, bookbinder and memory-keeper with a heart for documenting the joys and minutae of life through words and images, captured within my beautiful handmade books, boxes, and albums.

I've been interested in reading/writing/creating books my whole life. I worked for a university publisher and printer designing books as the desktop revolution began in the 1980s, learning on the job how to translate my traditional design methods into computer skills. While in the midst of computers and large printing systems at work, I began making books by hand, enjoying the flow and process of handwork and the unique results.

At Grace Notes Press, I combine my design aesthetic and modern computer techniques with traditional bookbinding methods, beautiful papers and fabrics from around the world, to create books, journals, boxes and albums that are made meaningful when filled with your words, photographs, art, collage and memories
