Daily Discounts: Rag & Bone Bindery

This is the last discount for the year here on decor8 so if you’ve been dragging your feet remember that most of the discounts I’ve posted end either November 21st or the 30th and that’s it! I’ll pull together a post in just a moment highlighting all of these discounts to make it easier for you to take advantage of them before it’s too late. So! Let’s click on over to Rag & Bone Bindery in Providence, Rhode Island now where you can save 20% on handmade books from albums to journals, grow charts and beyond, some with Amy Butler fabric as covers. I’m currently working with Rag & Bone to design a small collection of decor8 journals so stay tuned, more on that in the weeks to come!

About Rag & Bone: Owner Jason Thompson is a bookbinder and the author of Making Journals by Hand: 20 Creative Projects for Keeping Your Thoughts. He also contributed to decor8 a few months ago with two wonderful posts, “Favorite Paper Artists” and “Artistic & Inspiring: Altered Books“. He also covered the RISD Show in December 2006 here and well as Craftland Providence.

Rag & Bone had a most humble start which makes me want to support this company even more… in 1991 Jason sold journals from a blanket on the street to Harvard students and faculty! These were journals which he bound one-at-a-time in the living room of his tiny Boston apartment. He married the love of his life, Ilira, in 1997 and she joined him in the business and they’ve been running Rag & Bone together ever since. Their bindery is on the first floor of a renovated mill building built in 1900 and they live on the second floor (short commute!) with their two lovely children.

This offer is good until November 30th, take 20% everything, coupon code: decor8. Have fun!

Kari Herer Photography

I wrote about Kari Herer Photography some time ago, do you recall her work? I was working on a small project this afternoon for an upcoming issue of People magazine and I came upon Kari again over in my Etsy faves and noticed that her new photography ‘boxes’ just listed. Wouldn’t one make a perfect present?

Ah, lovely!
