Since 2008 artisan bookbinder Susan Green has harnessed traditional bookbinding techniques, historical binding styles and natural materials to offer books which facilitate the making of memories, as well as providing a beautiful physical space for artists and writers to explore their ideas. Attention to detail, simplicity of design and the celebration of natural materials are the hallmarks of Susan's work, which is known for its quality, beauty and durability.
Susan has worked closely with individual and corporate clients across the world with her Bespoke Service. This allows you to commission a personalised book in your own choice of colours, with a custom dedication printed on the titlepage, such as a meaningful quotation or company logo.
For those in a hurry, Susan also offers a Ready To Ship Collection of leather Wedding Guest Books, Memory Books, Journals and Artist's Sketchbooks that are in stock for worldwide delivery with express options.
Susan is passionate about excellence in craft and is a member of the Heritage Crafts Association. She has taught adult learners in Dorset since 2015 and in 2021 began offering 1-1 mentoring sessions over Zoom. She enjoys facilitating fulfilling adventures in bookbinding and artist's books, whether with hobbyists or established creatives working in other fields, such as photography, who want to bring book forms to their repertoire. Susan also works with props buyers to supply productions and venues.
2018 saw the launch of a new Sustainable Collection designed for people with environmental and ethical priorities. Susan loves to explore the possibilities of sustainable natural materials and continues to incorporate them into her designs wherever possible. She takes care to use recyclable, home-compostable packaging to deliver your orders.
