button hole books
Welcome to Purplebean Bindery, a one woman studio passionate about making handsome, sturdy, inviting blank books and funky, entertaining, limited edition artists book. I love making books. I love the form, the techniques, the materials. I delight in thinking that every blank book I make is a collaboration between myself and whoever ends up filling the pages, recording momentous events and everyday life. I love books as functional art. I love that my artist books are held in peoples' hands, inviting discovery and participation. Find Purplebean Bindery books at art fairs around New England, in local Maine shops and galleries, and on Etsy.
