Juju Books was founded in Glasgow in 2017 by bookbinder, illustrator and all-round paper enthusiast Gillian Stewart.
After gaining a Design Degree from Glasgow School of Art and time spent training in a small commercial bindery, Gillian went on to become a prize winning QEST Craft Scholar, studying from Master (and Mistress) bookbinders across Europe. Gillian is also a Licentiate of Designer Bookbinders UK, and Chair of the Society of Bookbinders in Scotland.
Bookbinding is a craft that involves several processes; learned, practised and refined over time. We’re committed to continued learning and development of these skills, keeping them relevant and contemporary whilst honouring the tradition.
