Handbound Books by Cathy Durso - Close 2 Home Etsy Feature & Discount

Store Feature - Handbound Books by Cathy Durso -

Handbound journals, notebooks, and sketchbooks, and custom made boxes and portfolios

About - My handbound books are all put together completely by my own hands. I design the look and feel of each book individually, deciding what materials will work together to make a beautiful, unique item, then cut, stitch, and glue the materials together by hand.

I took a bookbinding class as an undergraduate and was instantly hooked! I love the process and working through each step to create beautiful, unique books. Since that first class, I have continued to explore bookbinding techniques and grow in my craft. My own ideas and the custom orders I get through my Etsy shop are always giving me new creative challenges, which is very exciting and rewarding!

Everyone has a use for journals, notebooks, and sketchbooks, whether they like to write, draw, doodle, jot, or list. It's nice to be able to put your thoughts and ideas down in a one-of-a-kind, well-crafted, handmade book.
