During the last year I’ve let this site languish, but I’ve also made some big changes to my life. Since I last posted, I’ve moved twice, first back to Northfield and then to Iowa. If you find yourself in Northfield, you can visit my fine binding of The Merchant of Venice (which I’ll post about soon!) in Special Collections at Carleton College.

I also wrote and article for the Andrew Marvell Society Newsletter, available here, about the creation of my fine binding of the Poems of Andrew Marvell.
I’m now in my first year of the combined Library Science/ Book Studies program at the University of Iowa. It’s wonderful; I’ll end up with a Library Science degree, a Certificate in Book Studies from the amazing Center For the Book, and more experience with book repair and preservation from my job in the Conservation Lab!
