Erin Fletcher
Quincy, Massachusetts

Erin Fletcher was first introduced to the craft of bookbinding while obtaining her BFA at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago by experimenting with structures of the book as a conceptual platform for art. In 2012, Erin graduated from North Bennet Street School, which enabled her to fine tune her hand skills and focus on the historical craft of bookbinding. Shortly after graduating, Erin established Herringbone Bindery, an independent studio that offers fine and edition binding. She also runs a popular bookbinding blog called Flash of the Hand, offering interviews with bookbinders and book artists.
