Katie Gonzalez, the talent behind linenlaid&felt, is a traditional artist who has devoted her time to keeping the classic art of bookbinding alive. Handmade wedding guest books, baby books, Instagram photo albums, travel journals and sketchbooks combine the cultural identity of Italy with a touch of Southern charm.

While digital devices and apps reign supreme in other workplaces, Katie Gonzalez has built a tactile career for herself as a full-time bookbinder. Her business, linenlaid&felt, is named after the textures of the paper she cuts, folds and stitches into one-of-a-kind sketchbooks, journals and photo albums in her 10-foot-by-11-foot studio — one that’s free of computer screens.

The soft leather and colorfully marbled covers of linenlaid&felt’s hand-bound books are irresistible... A perfect present and keepsake ready to be filled with salutations from loved ones, indelible images or simply the day’s random ruminations.

I love a good notebook, at home or on the job, where I can jot down ideas and doodle and write to-do lists and goals. So, by my very nature, I’m a big fan of these gorgeous handmade books crafted by Katie Gonzalez of Nashville, Tennessee.
