Paper Book Press

Henrietta Clews aka Retta Clews

Ever since I was a little girl reading books under the bed-covers with a flashlight after lights out - or cutting out paper dolls or coloring in coloring books or making shoe-box dioramas using the Sears catalogue for images - I have loved both reading and writing, plus just messing around with paper and crayons and fabrics and paints and scissors and glue and . . and . . and . . . .

Now as a grown-up I still do all those things. My creations include paste-papers, prints, note-cards, one-off artist's books with my own text and images, blank hand-bound journals, custom-made books, hand-dyed fabrics and quilts. Here I will share with you some of what I have made, so you can enjoy it too.
