The Black Bird
A black bird is a symbol of great mystery, their beautiful songs calling to us to lean into the greatest mystery and fantasy of all; Life. Life is shrouded in mystery, but we have the power to live it however we wish. A black bird beckons toward the fantasy with its song, asking you to come along on the journey that is forming your own story, your own life.
In my eyes, it can all start with an empty book.
I found my love for book binding during my undergrad years at SUNY New Paltz. I spent hours upon hours in the book binding room; experimenting, playing with different stitching techniques, and ways to bind all the pieces together. Not only is it fulfilling, it also provides a calm state of mind when creating something with your own hands.
I started Black Bird Binding not only because of my love for binding books, but to provide people with special, custom products; something made specifically for them, a personal token to carry with them and inspire them to fill the blank pages with whatever their soul desires. The books are made for you, it is up to you to decide what to do with them.
