Carla is a former higher education administrator turned bookbinder based in Atlanta, Georgia. After settling in Atlanta and soon after meeting a wonderful calligraphy and bookbinding instructor, Carla’s passion for bookbinding was set. Carla refers to herself as “The Causal Bookbinder,” for her non-traditional journey into book arts. After giving some pieces as gifts at a holiday gathering, Carla received questions about pricing and started laying the groundwork for her company, The Casual Bookbinder.
