Marysa is an artisan bookbinder. As if that wasn’t cool enough! But more than that, Marysa is the artisan bookbinder working with me on the print production of graphic novel HOAX Psychosis Blues.
You can check out Marysa’s work at her company website Otter Bookbinding Ltd (www.otterbookbinding.com), and when you do, you’ll see at once why I chose to work with her.
And I do mean work WITH.
Book production is, of course, a professional service that requires paying for. But costs aside, the main criteria for me when looking for a printer (and I looked long and hard) was to find someone who would be more than just a service provider. What I wanted - what the project demanded - was someone who would work in a more collaborative sense. And that’s exactly what I found in Marysa. She’s been, and continues to be, a fantastic guide and adviser, brimful with interest and knowledge. It’s been a pleasure getting to know her and a thrill watching such an eye for exquisite detail at work.
Thank you Marysa :)
