Inquiries and commissions welcome, but please note that Ros does not undertake repairs, rebinds, or restoration work, or small edition/thesis binding: she is a hand bookbinder whose chosen work is to 'make' new rather than 'mend' old. Past and present may overlap for Ros when she embraces old materials in new books, or 'alters' books to give them a new direction and lease of life: those who missed the Ex Libris exhibition at the Bucks County Museum last Dec-Feb will have another chance to see it at the NT property Blickling (Norfolk) in September 2018.
