Ros Long at By Hand Books

Handmade Books & Creative Bindings

This year’s directory entry is not a finished work (see Gallery pictures and/or website for some of these) but an idea in development. A fresh look at materials – better still, a new find - can prompt another take on a favourite structure, or sometimes there’s an idea awaiting a further imaginative hit and a stock-check of potential materials before it can be realised.

Visitors are invited to follow a creative bookbinder’s routes of exploration, buy from a range of finished books, or perhaps place a commission as a result of what they discover at By Hand Books.

'Literary links & loose ends' being explored this year in her creative bookbinding, while Ros continues to widen the range of her pretty & (mostly!) practical handmade books. Other venues & exhibitors on site make it a worthwhile visit to Layby Farm year round, but specially for Bucks Art Weeks.
