Anne's Books & Papers
Welcome to my website showing some of the many books I have created.  

Romanian Doors

"Romanian Doors" represents a collaboration between me and Razvan Supuran, a bookbinder and papermaker in Bucharest, Romania.  I am excited to offer copies from an edition of 30 volumes (some of which stayed in Romania).  The book has covers of Romanian red oak, attached with leather and copper and is sewn with a Romanesque binding.

Interior pages of "Romanian Doors" are of handmade paper and include pictures of many styles of doors from medieval to contemporary, from painted to metal sculpture, but all depicting a variety of architectural styles. The book sells for $150.00.

This book is a softcover portfolio style with longstitch binding, filled with signatures of handmade paper.  It has been sold.

I also made this book while in Romania.  It is hard cover, with leather-patterned paper on the covers and a Byzantine style binding.  Interior pages are a fine-grain drawing paper.  The book sells for $55.00. (sold)

There is more written about this wedding guest book on the "Album" page of the website...

I made this sketchbook for one of my sisters, covering book-board with my hand-marbled paper.  The Bristol board pages are bound with the Coptic stitch.  She has filled every page with her sketches and calligraphy!
