Ros Long at By Hand Books

Please note this listing is from the 2018 Open Studios

Handmade Books and Creative Bindings

Celebrating in 2018 the glories of Japanese decorative papers and featuring some of the Japanese binding styles, materials and tools associated with them. Other book ranges also on show.

By Hand Books adjoins Obsidian Art at Layby Farm, where there are 3 other craft shops/studios on site.

See www.byhandbooks.co.uk for more information.

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.
