Kel Flowers is a bookbinder from Tasmania, “…that wee little island at the bottom of Australia that often gets left off maps or is thought to be a bit of a myth”, who makes beautiful leather books on commission. They’re the kind of journals Sam Gamgee might take with him to Mordor. Kel has been bookbinding for only a few years and says her first bound book was an address book she made because she wanted to, “…make one rather than buy something cheap and impersonal. I really had no idea it would turn into such an obsession.” Good thing it did, her work is beautiful and personal. Kel is also a painter and sculptor.
