Jenni Grey

Each of my bindings is a unique piece created specifically for the book; the text and design of the book being central to the concept of individual bindings. My aim is not to illustrate or interpret the text, but to follow a personal response to themes and ideas within the book. Developing bookbinding structures to enable me to use a variety of materials and processes is an ongoing concern in my work. I would like my bindings to be seen as objects in their own right, so the container, frequently a wooden box, is an integral part of the finished piece.
