Decorative Papers

What makes Crowing Hens Bindery unique is that I also produce decorative papers. I use these papers on my own books and offer them to fellow bookbinders and artists to use as well. Whether hand marbled, painted, or letterpress printed I design my papers to meet the standards of durability and longevity. My inks and paints are colorfast and my papers are archival. Perfect for bookbinding, gift wrapping, collage, drawing, printing, or even framing, my papers will not only stand out, but also withstand the test of time.
