After settling in Atlanta and soon after meeting a wonderful calligraphy and bookbinding instructor, Carla’s passion for bookbinding was set. Carla has coined, “The Casual Bookbinder,” as her style of binding as she uses alternatives to traditionally heavy, bulky equipment in the bookbinding process.
After giving some pieces away at a holiday gathering, she received a few questions about pricing and started laying the groundwork for Harper + Charlotte Handmade Books.
Harper + Charlotte specializes in a variety of handmade books: case-bound, Coptic stitch, and leather (both animal and vegan) soft-cover books. From folding to gluing, to stitching, our books are all handcrafted. Carla has recently been featured in Voyage ATL and on Buy From A Black Woman.
