Get to Know

My name is Liesan, I was born in the autumn of 1978 and now live with a number of animals and a terrific man in Nieuwegein, The Netherlands. I am training to become a professional bookbinder so my main focus is on making books, boxes, portfolio's, albums etc.. I also am a great paper enthusiast and love to make and decorate my own paper, doodle with my xacto knife and just leaf through my stacks of remarkable and unremarkable papers. Besides working with paper I am passionate about almost every craft or art form imaginable, if space and my budget would allow I'd have a go at them all. When possible I use materials that are produced with the wellbeing of earth and all it's inhabitants in mind. However; the quality of my creations always comes first. I work in a smoke-free and pet friendly environment.

I enjoy custom orders and can also bind printed books for you.

Bio Photo Gallery

    I did make some pictures of my 'studio' when it was cleared and clean and orderly but as that is not at al the usual state of it I decided to show you some clutter. The 'fine mess' - as one of my friends called it - on this picture is of course not a workable situation for me :) (these are all the books I made in 6 months minus a few custom orders and sales)

    I adore my old cast iron bookpress, it's small and simple and suits my needs perfectly for the time being. It also doesn't take up too much space which is good because the space I have is limited.
