Anna van Rietschoten
I’m a bookbinder and always curious to learn new bindings and structures.
On September 1, 2018, I ‘introduced’ Anna In Paperland and started posting on Instagram. Three years later I started working fulltime as a bookbinder. For me, Anna In Paperland is about the magical wonderworld of paper, binding books and making boxes, exploring art — and a reference to one of my favourite books, Alice in Wonderland.
I graduated from the bookbinding college that is part of the Art & Design College in Utrecht, the Netherlands. I also had the privilege to attend a number of classes by master bookbinders.
Please feel free to contact me for your own unique handmade binding via email@example.com. You are also very welcome to check out my Etsy shop: annainpaperland.etsy.com for ready to ship books!
