Lotus Blu book art
A small family run artisan bindery based in West Yorkshire England. We provide an eclectic range of bookbinding services for all occasions, each hand bound book has a high design whimsical element about them that are keepsakes made for treasured memories, not something that should be hidden away, but instead displayed, loved and maybe passed on to their next guardian.
In an age of mass production of machine bound books, we strive to stay true to the tradition of simple hand bound books, a slow and mediative process.
If you are looking for a book for a special occasion such as a wedding or anniversary or an art project, do get in touch using the contact form above with your custom request.
Moneeza Khan - Founder, Creative Director | Book Artist
My love of photography led me to making journals and photo albums to document my travels in the early 90's when I worked as a product designer for a family run handicrafts business which enabled me to travel through South Asia and beyond sourcing handmade crafts, vintage textiles and rugs. It was during this enriching period in my life that I was drawn to the art of bookbinding which I have since been exploring as an art form. I am self-taught, constantly learning and full of ideas for more books than I probably have time to make. My work is heavily influenced by my South Asian and English heritage and my background in textiles and block printing. I began Lotus Blu Book Art in 2011 as a sideline to my day job which quickly became more than a full-time occupation requiring an extra pair of hands or two. In 2018 my creative Mother and Auntie joined Lotus Blu as studio help working along side me, we are now a trio of makers making beautifully bound books for new guardians across the globe.
