Emily Martin’s Bound Books

I learned about Emily Martin while reading a book about bookbinding without glue or paste.

This is her website:


She makes interesting bound books.

She just had a workshop in NY about how to make carousel books.

You can see all of her books here: http://emilymartin.com/?page_id=4

They are actually really cool, especially the Romeo and Juliet book at the top.

Eight Slices of Pie

My favorite would have to be My 12 Steps, it’s about her alcoholic husband, very powerful, and it’s also a pop-up book.
