Meet The Maker // Trina Parkin

Everyone loves a good book...and a good book artist. Soft leather, long stitch bindings, and intricate Japanese paper pages are just a few of the signature styles of self-proclaimed Book Artist Trina Parkin. Hailing from Alberta, Canada, and now based in Huntington Beach, the graphic designer-book maker loves every bit of life, from her full-time work in Irvine to her part-time book building at home. She joined our holiday pop-up shop in late 2014, and her one-of-a-kind journals are now featured in our online marketplace. Parkin's work is so stunning, all the bookworms are inching her way.

We asked Parkin a few questions about her craft to get "the story behind the storefront."
