Immaginacija Bindery produces handmade books, journals and custom printed diaries using various bookbinding techniques and styles.
All products are completely handmade by me, Lucie Forejtova, in my small, home-based hand bindery in Wolvercote, Oxfordshire. I use carefully selected materials – many of them are recycled or upcycled from post-consumer waste and locally sourced thus creating a zero waste and vegan range of products. I also use a whole selection of traditional bookbinding materials such as book cloths, florentine or marbled papers and with little bit of modern twist I turn them into aesthetically pleasing objects of daily use.
Born in the Czech Republic I started doing bookbinding as a relaxing hobby during my Earth Sciences studies. Since relocating to Oxford in 2010 I took the plunge and turned my hobby into living making business. Since then my books have found many happy homes around the world.
I believe in the power of handwriting, the simple pleasure of putting a pen to paper and enjoys creating custom journals for her customers – therefore custom orders are always welcome.
