Rachel Ward-Sale
I studied Art, Design and Bookbinding at The University
of Brighton from 1977 – 81. In 2005 I was elected a
Fellow of Designer Bookbinders.
Since leaving college, I have worked as a self
employed bookbinder, undertaking a wide variety of
projects. Although a large proportion of my current
work involves the repair and rebinding of old books, my
main interest remains centred on the creation of
designed bindings. Texture, both natural and
manufactured, has been a recurring influence on my
work. Recently I have been concentrating on this
element of design, creating bindings using found
objects to impress into, or airbrush onto, the surface of
leather creating subtle textures and patterns.
