Jason Thompson

Jason Thompson began making hand-bound books in 1991 after being inspired by one that his wife gave him as a birthday present. The original books were made with simple hand tools: a knife, bone folder, glue brush, needle and thread.

As his company grew, Thompson hired more people and moved the business to six increasingly larger studios. His wife Ilira eventually joined the team as general manager, and now, Thompson employs a team of skilled artisans who create quality albums and books from hand. collection

        Comments about ANNIVERSARY BOOK:

        It was OK - I was disappointed in the page layouts and the fact that each anniversary was not labeled with its tradition, IE. first anniversary is paper.

        Comments about ANNIVERSARY BOOK:

        I bought this for my sister-in-law's bridal shower. The book is nice quality but I wish it could have combined the fresh modern design and wit of the 12-year anniversary book with the length (up to 50 years) of this book. It seemed a little boring, and the cover was a different color (green) than i thought it would be (black). However, I think it made a very nice gift and I like how it is handmade.

          This is a beautiful way to commerate our life together. It is simple, yet elegant way to remember each year we have together -not just the wedding day itself. I just thought it was a little pricy. Nonetheless it's a great idea.

            My husband and I started to reflect and remember nine years of our amazing marriage, choosing the best photo from each anniversary and stories from the past. We are so excited to move forward each year and document our years together.

            I wish I had known about this at year one!! An amazing gift!

            • Memories to Pass Down

            Comments about ANNIVERSARY BOOK:

            This is a beautifully constructed book that I plan to fill out and give to my husband on our next anniversary. I only wish that I had gotten it before our sixth because my memory is a bit hazy, but half the fun will be having him help me fill in the details. I also bought one for my brother since he was recently married and can start from year one. There's not a huge amount of writing space for each year, but I think the idea of collecting memories throughout the years all in one place is a great one, and this book will be one for us, my children, and someday my grandchildren to enjoy as they get a deeper glimpse into our life together. I agree with others who have written that the cover fabric feels a little stodgy, and I only wish that there were a few options for this so that you could select a color/theme that fit you more closely.

                  I purchased this product for my step-daughter and her husband's first anniversary...it is absoultely perfect for her (them), the handmade construction is sturdy and exactly what she appreciates, the butterflies have a very special meaning in our family and the color scheme of her wedding was predominately green and brown. This is the perfect choice!
