Debra Frances

Debra Frances is a bookbinder and book artist from Winnipeg. She is fascinated by the compact form of the book and how it can house and reflect a wide range of ideas. Drawn to the quality and design of historical bindings Frances is always working to innovate utilizing contemporary materials, exploring exotic woods, logs, driftwood, and fish skins.

These swivelling, handmade book ornaments are bound with individual pages using traditional bookbinding techniques.
