Our word this week is “book” so I got into the studio with bookbinder Sarah Jarrett-Kerr. Her thirty-years in the craft produces physical objects that are almost more appealing than their literary contents.
A look through the bookbinder’s studio breathes eclecticism and textural sensuality. Her accuracy is impressive as she spots 0.5mm errors with a single look. In this busy room, an active imagination for colours, textures and materials works with ancient machinery to create objects that make e-books seem a sick joke.
