About the Artist

Mychal is the owner of Iona Handcrafted Books, which is a small bookbinding studio in East Austin. Iona specializes in a centuries old bookbinding technique used by monks throughout Europe, which Mychal learned in Venice, Italy in 1992. Though her studio still creates the traditional leather journal and photo album with a leather strap closure, she also creates heirloom books with closures fashioned from Victorian architectural hardware. She has lived in Austin for over 20 years now, and loves it!
