Hi! Welcome to Bookraft!
I made this website because I love making books and I want to share my
craft with everyone around me!

I specialise in making perfect bound books (books with spine), photo albums,
guestbooks, cards, bookmarks, and any kind of book that you can think of!

so what's So Special about Bookraft?

Here you can customise your book to the smallest detail, like what colour you
want it to be, What size, what text you want on the front, and any other wacky
ideas that you have! ( not too wacky please ). Just let me know and i'll try my
best to find a way to do it! Or if you are the clueless type, just take a browse
around and see which style of book you might want!

Customised notebooks make great gifts for anyone ( saves you the aimless shopping ),
and works great when you want to give a group of friends a similar themed design!

And anyway, one can never have enough notebooks neh?

* Enjoy! *

*Prices do not include postage charges, books can be rather heavy so you might want to
meet me in person instead to save costs ( and protect the book from all that rough handling ).

I operate only in Singapore, but if you really really want something sent abroad,
the postage charges will have to be handled by yourself

(roozh) : French for Red
14.85cm x 10.5cm /  Refillable / textured paper hard cover / Ribbon pagemarker

I have been looking for a way for a long time to make refillable books, cos its such a pity
when you have to stop using a pretty book because its all filled up ...
Anyway I also realised that the books I gave my friends weren't being used
because they didn't want to waste it.. but not using it is also wasting it right? haha..

Anyway this is made for my mom; perfect size for slipping into handbags and totes
Good for writing shopping lists or to do lists or all those hundreds of things..
Why not do it with a pretty book complete with a pendant?

Just buy any A6 notebook and slide it into the jacket
will be putting up instructions on how to use it soon

Check back for A5 sized refillable book jackets too!

A verse on the cover to remind us of the
promises that God has given us in His Holy Book!

I call these two books Mary (cream) and Laura (green)

Hidden Treasures

14.85cm x 21cm / 100 blank pages / 80gsm / textured paper hard cover / Ribbon Pagemarker

So far all the children I've had
*cough* I mean books I've made are all girls.
I mean are all made for girls

Therefore! I have decided to design a book that would appeal to
the more manly population. Something you can order for your dad or boyfriend!

I made this notebook for the purpose of writing down the
various things I learnt from reading the Bible.

Thy Word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against Thee - Ps 119:11

9.9cm x 21cm / 100 blank pages / 80gsm / textured paper hard cover

Introducing Sylphie's older sister Sylvia!
Sylvia's much more confident and assertive compared to Sylphie;
She isn't afraid to voice her opinions and doesn't bend under pressure

The flower I drew is called a clematis,
a popular creeping plant grown in cooler climates

Sylvia - Of Latin origin, meaning 'woods', 'forest'

Buttons & Ribbons
9.9cm x 21cm / 100 blank pages / 70gsm / textured paper hard cover

This series is inspired by my wonderful girlfriends who have been
with me from secondary school - some of us are the buttons and some of us
are the ribbons - and we need each other to hold the friendship together!

Do take a good look at the close ups that I have taken.. I have been rather sore
about the quality of pictures that I am able to post (given file size and loading time)
therefore I have taken closeups to show the beautiful textures of the covers.
I use these textured papers for all my books.. yes.. so they actually look
much better in real life than in the pictures. ( This applies to simple series too )

Christmas spells B-U-S-Y

Christmas was a busy busy time for me and here are some pictures of
some of the books that I have done during this festive season!

This was done for a sunday school class... each of the pictures illustrate a verse
that is also in the picture itself ( sorry its too small to be seen )...
Hope the girls liked it!

Another series but with a different theme from the picture above...
This one is about different hobbies... I bet you can guess what they are!
Experimented with different frame shapes this time.. They turned out quite well!
