A hand made book is an invitation to slow down, to relax. It might have hand made paper, a unique binding, beautiful images and typography. Or, it might be a more affordable trade version. No matter what type, though, it is a treasure box to open, explore and savor.

In an age when the internet makes books readily available, it is still important to handle and touch a book. It’s not that we’re against computers and digital media. Indeed, we use computers as tools to create many of our books. But we believe that digital media and hand made books need to be complimentary. Each has a different role to play in our world.

Limited Edition Hand Made Books

All of our limited edition, hand made books are collectors’ items that are painstakingly handcrafted using the best  materials, including archival-quality inks and acid-free papers from around the world. Sometimes the books are made entirely in-house in our Arlington, VA, studio; other times we collaborate with experts elsewhere. Regardless, though, each book is made so that it will last for decades.

Gorgeous Books Created One By One

Our limited edition, hand made books range from the Hebrew poetry of renown Israeli poet Yehuda Amichai to digital paintings of small town America. We are now specializing in Hebrew and Judaic titles. Currently, we are at work on another artist book about the Biblical story of the binding of Isaac.

All of these books are created one by one. We hope you’ll enjoy browsing through our books on-line, at a book fair, in a public library collection or our studio. Our studio is currently located in Arlington VA, where we are easily accessible to Arlington County, Fairfax County and Washington, D.C.

Trade Paperback Books

Not only rare book collectors, museums and libraries should be able to afford exquisite books. While we love handmade books, sometimes it’s simply not feasible to make every book by hand, especially with titles that have a wide audience. So, we have taken to making occasional trade paperback books, such as “Nick Virgilio: A Life in Haiku so that many people can enjoy it. Still, we apply all of our appreciation and knowledge of books, our design skills and sensibility into making these types of books as special as possible.
