I am available for custom commissions on any project that you may have in mind, including:


Hand-binding old, broken books and family heirlooms




Hand-crafting one-of-a-kind books with your favorite poem (or one of my original poems) in calligraphy




Re-binding and reproducing previously printed books with beautiful typography, calligraphy, and marbled endpapers




Creating accordion-style, fold-out books (blank or with calligraphy)




Designing jewelry-box accordion books, including watercolor, calligraphy, and a poem




Creating an alphabet book of calligraphic alphabet initial caps (or any other idea you may have)
