Natalie Stopka

Gorgeous bindings! Doilies! Lace! Luscious fabrics! Beautiful colors! Ribbon! Applique! Embroidery! So much to love in these lovely handmade books by Natalie Stopka. The way that she integrates these creative bindings into the covers is so delicate and dear – from the intertwined ribbons extending over the covers, to the integration of the fiber and vintage ephemera, to the patterns formed by the threads of the binding. An inspiring use of traditional techniques to make a fresh body of work.

I first learned of Natalie Stopka’s beautiful and subtle handmade books via Poppytalk.
