Sam has always been interested in traditional craft and bookbinding. She started at Ludlow Bookbinders in November 2018, having previously worked at an Oxfam bookshop. Sam noted the longevity of well bound books and wanted to learn more about the craft. Her favourite part of the book binding process is selecting marbled endpapers, never an easy job when there are so many unique and beautiful patterns to choose from.
