Meet a book artist: Thomasina Taylor

Special Collections recently acquired several miniature books published by Thomasina Taylor, a Utah County-based printer and bookbinder, for our Fine Press Collection.

As an undergraduate, Taylor worked as a student employee in L. Tom Perry Special Collections. Her experiences sparked an interest in books which led her to pursue a joint Master’s of Library Science/Master’s of Fine Arts degree in Book Arts at the University of Alabama. Since graduating, she’s returned to Utah, setting up a small studio in Spanish Fork. She enjoys letterpress work and historic bindings. Her work can be found in the library catalog by searching for the name of her press, Ilene Books.
