HAVE YOU GOT AN IDEA?
I love getting emails where you tell me that you are looking for something similar to a piece in the gallery, but with stitching just so, a fastening in a certain style, paper instead of fabric, some detail or other which is related to the person the book is for…oh! And their favourite colour is… Tell me!
You are the one who makes each book unique.
Some time ago I read an article and saw a sentence which I reread several times because for me, that is what my work is about, it’s about “…the art of creating intimacy, comforting the soul, the pleasure of having comforting things, a welcome connection…”
My name is Jes, I’m from Barcelona, and my story with bookbinding began with love at first sight, and that has now lasted for 17 years. A few weeks after specializing in a subject linked to graphic design and photography at the Art School, I had the pleasure of attending an exhibition by Pamela Moore, and that is when my passion for this profession began.
I completed my studies at the Conservatori de les Arts de Llibre (La Llotja), and have continued in this vein combining my work with more training. Because the best thing about this is that it never ends. This profession is full of incredible details. I am very passionate about textures, books that you can feel with all of your senses.
I create containers for your memories, photos, cut-outs, recipes… pieces that help you to create moments for recovering the pleasure of reading, writing and preserving your photos. These are things that you can turn to you when you stop for a break and a cup of tea. Moments which happen only when you have a book in your hands.
Arquitectura del Libro (Book Architecture) is my way of understanding creativity: walking through beauty. But I will tell you more about this further on. Will you join me?
