Megan Stallworthy

Megan makes sketchbooks, notebooks and bespoke books using handmade, watercolour and pattern papers, leather, vellum and linen. Each book is bound by hand in her studio in Somerset, using traditional bookbinding techniques and archival materials, with a contemporary feel.

Drawing inspiration from the natural beauty of paper, linen and leather, Megan likes simplicity in both form and design so that the materials can speak for themselves. She aim to make books that feel calm and subtle, often inspired by historical book forms, and brought to life by areas of colour, pattern or texture. The tactile nature of a book is also important; there is something so magical about the feel of a book in your hands and the movement of the turning pages. The books are practical, made to be used and to last.

Megan studied Bookbinding at Brighton University. As well as making books for sale and to commission, she repairs books and teaches bookbinding.

Commission Work from Megan Stallworthy

Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.

Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
