LizzieMade Hand Bound Books is run by me, Liz Gillum, from a studio in Bedfordshire.
I am a book-binder and have been selling my hand-made books for a number of years. There’s something about Paper that I have always found alluring and fascinating.
Discovering how to create books was exciting for me. I love the process of designing and making a book, from just a pile of paper, leather and fabric, to the finished item.
I also love to have the input of my customers, to design and make them something extra special, for their wedding, party, christening, or just to keep and use for themselves.
To know that a piece of my work – one of my books – is loved and appreciated by other people – even those I have never met – all over the world, is a wonderful feeling. To produce something that is special, just for that person, is amazing.
I love my job!
