Testimonials

hand bound books with bookbinding tools

"Beautiful books, beautifully made with lovely papers. Megan sent my order promptly and kept in touch to ensure I received them on time as I was sending on to my daughter in Australia. Cannot speak highly enough of the customer service and quality of goods, thank you Megan."

Jane

"Megan stabilised, cleaned and restored a first edition book from 1883 for me. She did an excellent job and the repairs were appropriately sympathetic to the original. I am now able to enjoy this 139 year old book as it is robust enough to be handled and read again. Megan was most obliging and totally fair with her charging - I highly recommend her services and level of customer care."

Elizabeth

"Megan's work is really beautiful and elegant, with great attention to detail. I ordered a bespoke miniature book which is super cute and unique. I look forward to writing in it, which makes it all the more special than an ordinary shop bought journal. She is attentive and takes time to get to know exactly what you want, and gives advice too. It's been a joy to work with her!"

Sarah

"Friday night doodles in a lovely handmade book made by Megan Stallworthy which I totally kidded myself I was buying as a ‘nice present’ (as buying presents is always allowed). I often find handmade books daunting… something I shouldn’t /can’t mark else it will be ruined, but I went right ahead marking this one as mine. It's a beautiful book. I’ve been in a creative funk for a while so thank you for providing me the medium I needed to have some fun!"

hand made sketchbook with marbled paper square

"I bought a large sketchbook as a gift for my daughter who has just returned from Asia to use as a travel journal, I wanted her to have something special to record lovely memories. My daughter is delighted with the book which will be a poignant journal for her to look back on and smile later in her life. I would wholeheartedly recommend Megan to others who want a special book, they are simply beautiful."

Annie

"Receiving my handmade books from Megan was a treat in every way. Delivery was swift, and the books were so beautifully packaged that I was reluctant to open them. Both were beautifully crafted from gorgeous materials chosen and combined to produce books that are a joy to hold and use. I will be using my books to take notes when out and about researching two local history projects. I would recommend Megan’s books to anyone for both the quality of the product and the excellent service."
