Before creating Bask Bindery, Marcella Di Mare worked as an advertising art director for 25 years. Bookbindery is “equally creative and rewarding,” Di Mare says. Both professions required her to convey a story through design.
Bask Bindery offers journals, passport holders and ipad or phone cases; all in her abstract designs using a wide variety of materials from gold leaf, letterpress or wood cuts. Di Mare creates her own tools when necessary to attain the desired effect.
All the designs you will see on her website are unique. No two are alike. Customers enjoy her products and many of them explain how it feels like they “own a piece of artwork.”
Marcella Di Mare is also a volunteer at Bag Books.org where to helps make tactile story books for people with severe or profound learning disabilities.
