Shop of the Week: Uber Art

I love making hand-bound books and the books at this week's featured shop are Uber-Fabulous!!! I am in several different groups in which I swap ATCs, Altered art/books and Hand-bound mini books and I am in love with the copic stitched beauties in UberArt's shop [I haven't tackled this type of hand-bound book yet]. Book making is one of the lost arts, but Beth is keeping the tradition alive with her sophisticated hand-bound journals and guestbooks. I will be contacting her for a custom book to commemorate my 20th anniversary with my husband that will be next year. I really love the combinations of covers and colors, too - my favorite is the Japanese Crane Mini Journal [wink, wink]. Oh, I almost forgot the gorgeous Polymer clay pendants - in Asian & Egyptian themes with rich colors and authentic detailing. SMb

If you are in the market for a stunning hand-bound journal or guest book, look no further than Beth’s work is to die for! Any paper lover would agree that her work would be a pleasure to create an art journal with. Your guests will also love to sign their names in her guest books, and these would make a great addition to any event, not just weddings. Wouldn’t it be fun to have a guest book from that backyard BBQ that was so fun last summer? You can have blank pages added to the back of Beth’s guest books for photos and mementos. A book like that would be cherished for years to come!

All of Beth’s books are made with tender loving care, with superior workmanship, and great attention to detail. She is a self-professed super-perfectionist and if it doesn't pass her quality control, it doesn't leave her studio!

“My customers inspire me to create books that both of us love. Making something beautiful that will be cherished and loved is very rewarding for me. I love working with paper, collecting paper, coordinating papers, touching paper... and so on! Selling my books gives me an excuse to buy more paper!” says Beth about her work.

Beth has an undergraduate degree in studio art and a Masters in Art Therapy. She has studied everything from paper arts to jewelry design, collage and pottery. She is a self-taught book artist and has been making books since around 2003.

Recently she worked with the Grammy Award winning rock band, The Fray, to create a backstage guest book for their 2009 summer tour. You can view her portfolio at
