Bound & Lettered was originally founded by Shereen LaPlantz, author of Cover to Cover and The Art & Craft of Handmade Books. Shereen created the magazine to serve as a source of inspiration and information for book artists. When she later became ill with cancer, John Neal, Bookseller, agreed to continue to publish her magazine. Shereen has since passed away, but we have continued to carry on her legacy — helping our readers in their creative explorations.
