Rebind . . .


Rebind of John Thomas'  "American Fruit Culturist" printed in Auburn, New York in 1849. This was a fun book as John Thomas actually lived in my hometown of Union Springs, New York!

Mark your Calendars . . .


Many thanks to Carol LaBorie for donating this wonderful antique printing press to the Ward W. O'Hara Agricultural Museum!

Museum volunteers have been working hard to get the press moved and ready for printing. We will be using it for the first time at my free Harvesting History lecture on bookbinding and printing tools on November 14th at 6pm. I hope to see you there!

Recent Commission . . .


What started as a crumbling scrapbook has been transformed into an enormous leather bound book weighing in at nearly 50lbs! Hundreds of pages of vintage calendar images were carefully removed from the original pages and adhered to new acid free paper. The size and weight made this project a real challenge. The book is sewn on hemp rope to give it strength.
