Dream Bindery

Welcome to the Dream Bindery! I make small blank books by hand.


You can find my books at:

The pages are made mostly from salvaged, recycled, or repurposed paper.

These little guys are handmade with Tender Loving Care, and they tend to have small imperfections. Each one is completely unique.


Some ideas for using one of these books:

  • dream journal

  • pocket-size travel journal

  • sketchbook

  • hand write your novel

  • mini scrap book journal

  • collect and record moments of inspiration and beauty throughout the day

  • spell book

  • recipe book

  • write a poem on each page

  • write all of your secrets and deepest fears in it, then leave it somewhere for a stranger to find

  • press flowers

  • shared journal to mail back-and-forth with a far away loved one

The covers are hardcover. I like to hunt for magical vintage fabrics and repurposable papers to use for the covers and pages. Sometimes I design my own fabrics to use. Each book is unique & made with love.

You can find Dream Bindery books for sale at my Etsy shop. If you are in Chicago, you can also visit Space Oddities in Humboldt Park. :D
