My name is Lucie Forejtova and I believe in power of handwriting: the tradition, the ritual and the simple pleasure of putting a pen to paper.

About a decade ago my constant need of new journals for writing led me to bookbinding and eventually to setting up a brand for my books.

Immaginacija Bindery is a small bookbindery based in my home in Oxford. All my books are handmade - I make journals, albums and personalised and custom printed diaries/planners with my very own design and choice of several languages.

I use various bookbinding techniques and styles. I like exposed spine bindings not only for their flexibility but also for the endless options of decorating them. I enjoy repairing and rebinding well loved books and making personalised journals.
