Deborah V. Thompson is a bookbinder and paper marbler. She's been making and selling books since 1996 - first starting as a vendor at the Portland Saturday Market. She went on to selling wholesale to places like the stationery giant Papyrus, and then to working exclusively with wedding photographers. After she had her kids she took a bit a detour from custom work and designed a baby memory book that she had manufactured. She is now slated to be the 11th graduate of the fine binding program at the American Academy of bookbinding.
