5 Beautiful Bookbinding-Themed Facebook Accounts to Follow This April

This series of posts already starts to look like a nice collection of wonderful and inspiring Facebook accounts related to bookbinding. We have enough to share with you at least until the end of the year. However, what’s even better, the list is constantly growing!

Huhu Hu

Huhu is a self-taught bookbinder from Quzhou, China. As many of us, she continues to study bookbinding with every new project and her questions, that are directed to her Facebook friends, may help you to find some new things about bookbinding.

You may want to check her old blog and compare some old works with what she is doing now. Blog wasn’t updated since 2014, but who knows, maybe she’ll resurrect it one day. And here is Huhu’s Etsy store: HGbookart.

I make books

That’s an official Facebook page of Piotr Jarosz, a bookbinder, who had won the Ash Rare Books Lettering Award at Designer Bookbinders Competition in 2016. We had interviewed him some time ago.

Piotr is a Polish bookbinder now working in the UK. He graduated from the University of Arts and works as a bookbinder in a workshop in Сentral London.

Here is a pretty new Facebook account, that already has some nice photos of miniatures posted. It would be really nice to see more new stuff there!

Bodleian Libraries

Looks like we have posted mainly links to accounts of bookbinders or binderies. Here is a different thing, however, worth following. The Bodleian Libraries include approximately 40 libraries that serve the University of Oxford in England. And their official Facebook account is very informative and beautiful! That’s a must to follow for a real booklover.

Monks Bookbinding

Joseph Ramsey is a wonderful bookbinding and book restorer from Ellensburg (Washington, USA). He has a lot happening at his Facebook account.

And here is a video about his bindery:
