Lost & Bound was formed out of a love of binding. I completed my hand-bookbinding apprenticeship in the bindery at Victoria University before moving to Christchurch and working as a bookbinder for the next 6 years. I then moved to Riwaka, in the gorgeous Nelson/Tasman region where I have set up a studio workshop behind my home.
One of my favourite parts of this work is restoring a well-loved book, breathing new life into the binding and cover. My clients are thrilled when they see that the completed book retains its antiqued characteristics, but is functional and sturdy.
My goal is to provide a range of services from one-off projects to larger runs, I feel great satisfaction creating handbound books to suit individual tastes and have also created a range of my own books and albums which can be personalised to make the ideal gift. These are available in my online shop.
