Of course, this Vendor Spotlight is near and dear to my heart, not just because I'm included, but because books and paper are my heart in just about every way. We are SO lucky to have both Binding Bee and Spring Leaf Press back for our Holiday show and excited to welcome newcomer Erin Huber, paper artist to the group! (clockwise from bottom left)
- Erin Huber: Having fallen in Love with the traditional German paper cutting technique, scherenschnitte, Erin creates fairy tale worlds in paper. A must see!
- Conduit Press: Talia (that's me!) creates every day 'sculpture' from discarded books- a treasure chest of literature. She also binds leather in her spare time.
- Gracie Sparkles Books: Grace is the crafty famous author of Crafty Superstar as well as her second book, Survival Guide. She's also the maker of pretty awesome linocut cards and handbound books!
- Spring Leaf Press: Mary is a mastermind book binder who creates not only Artist Books (shown above) and traditional bound books, but she's also a conservator who learned her craft at the one and only Lilly Library.
- The Binding Bee: One of a kind wedding guest books are Megan's specialty and for great reason: they're simply gorgeous. She also specializes in rustic and rugged leather journals for the traveler and dreamer.
