Blank Books

When Büchertiger started in 2008, making journals and other blank book was at the core of the studio activity. Since I had twins in 2011, however, blank books are not a focus of my work. This might change again when I have more time at my hands, but until then I take only very few commissions. But I do take some because I just love making books, so it might be worth to ask if you are interested. And I never stopped making books for myself. Below I included some photos that show a selection of blank books.


If you are interested in commissioning a book, please contact me. I enjoy working on and finding special solutions for personal requirements. Most of the commissions I made in the past were for blank books, but often adorned with a specially made lino print or another special design. I made a miniature book for a weddings to go into the locket of the bride, a special travel journal that doubled as a cook book, the series of DIY journals (now sold as instructions) was the result of a commission for a journal for someone who disliked writing in books due to the centrefold. I made sketchbooks in a special format for a graphic artist who makes traditional three panel mangas, large watercolour journals for the Levi Strauss Company, and a small travel guestbook for a papermaker to take to her booth at fairs, and many more.
