Beth Rose, Book Artist

I love to create with paper, type, colour and nature. ​

As a Graphic Designer, I designed books for a university publisher and printer as the desktop revolution began, learning on the job how to translate my traditional design methods into computer skills. While in the midst of new technology and offset printing systems at work, I began to explore the quiet, slower methods of making books by hand, enjoying the flow of process and the unique results.

At Grace Notes Press, I combine my design aesthetic, modern computers and vintage letterpress with traditional bookbinding methods to create books, boxes and albums.
