Tales of Childhood

A child's first year is an extraordinary time of discovery and adventure. With this handcrafted book you can capture that journey in a way that will be treasured for a lifetime. Created by master bookbinder Jason Thompson, the keepsake volume is crafted with a ribbon binding. The cloth-bound hard cover is custom-printed with the child's name and birthdate, and its sweet giraffe illustration is both stylish and whimsically childlike. Inside are 24 beautifully designed pages, full of prompts like "How we picked your name" or "The Big Day", and a vellum envelope to preserve a lock from baby's first haircut and other mementos. Handmade in Rhode Island.

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. He began by running the binding books in his studio apartment. The original books were made with simple hand tools: a knife, bone folder, glue brush, needle and thread.

As the 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
