Judith Cohen

SOMERVILLE, MA

I began my career in book restoration and now use my knowledge of book and enclosure forms to create various types of albums, journals and boxes. The Coptic style journals are based on early 2nd Century books, the Longstitch journal on a 16th Century Italian model and the little travel journals are inspired by 15th Century girdle books which were easily portable. Using the construction forms of the past I make fine handcrafted contemporary objects. I use paper and cloth from around the world in addition to painting my own paper. My work covers a wide and eclectic stylistic range and is at once decorative, practical and collectible.
