Inspired by the ancient craft of papermaking, Molly West began creating business cards and invitations for friends and family. After apprenticeships in paper conservation and fine design binding, she created the first Molly West Handbound Books in 1992, in the dining room of a San Francisco Victorian. Her collection includes photo albums, guest books, journals, address books, keepsake boxes, and a perpetual planner. Regardless of its function, every piece is archival, beautiful, and handmade.

Molly West handbook book covers are made from the most exquisite and opulent silk brocades, jacquards, dupionis, and taffetas. Fabrics and ribbons are combined with an artist's eye for harmony and surprise. They use classic construction methods to ensure precise stitching and study binding that makes each piece a cherished heirloom.
