My ethos and choice of materials strongly supports handmade, recycled, and quality products. In common with many craftspeople I work in a timely fashion but will not be rushed. Traditional bookcraft methods can require a great deal of drying and resting time (weeks rather than days). Further details on this and related topics are available at
