Geeky Bibliopegy. Custom hand-bound journals and albums, featuring Buffy, Firefly, Doctor Who, etc. Check the blog for additional details on many of the volumes.

Interesting work. Witney seems to be fond of the Coptic structure - which works pretty well for these types of artist books. I like that she provides some information about the materials used (I'm a book & document conservator and sometime book artist - this kind of info is all too often lacking with artist's books).

Thanks for the post! I can only gaze wistfully upon said geekery and wonder how I've become so saddle-stitched by my own banal chapter and verse-ness. O for a more perfect binding!

I wish my handwriting weren't so bad I'd feel guilty buying something like this. I know I'd never use it any more because I type what passes for my journal now. But there's something to the tactile feel and the pleasure of using something beautiful that I really envy, looking at these.

Not to be confused with Greek Bibliophagy.

Those are pretty cool conceptually, if not in execution. I love nerd books, hate coptics. I want to see those things in full leather.
