Kate is a multi award-winning artist bookbinder, specialising in contemporary fine bindings to commission or for exhibition. Working from a converted cowshed, on the outskirts of Frome, she uses traditional materials and techniques to produce a unique, modern binding that reflects the text, illustrations and typeface of the book. She also works with individuals and private presses to produce the whole book, whether one offs or limited editions. She can advise on all aspects of book production from editing and proofreading, typesetting and printing, binding and boxes. She is a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders, one of the foremost societies dedicated to the craft of fine bookbinding. She has books in the British, Bodleian, Victoria and Albert and Yale University Libraries as well as many public and private collections internationally and is a regular binder to The Booker Prize. She is a very experienced teacher and has initiated many converts to the joys of bookbinding with patience and humour.
