I design bindings because I enjoy books and their 3 dimensional form. A  binding is like a flat-planed sculpture that is turned in the hand to be viewed from many angles; it is like architecture in miniature where all aspects of space and flow need careful consideration. I like to build them from the inside out. I work with pattern, rhythm, and texture to create a simple, still surface: the text provides the underlying depth.
