A.E. Matheson
the novel

I am a self-taught book person of all trades. I created my first book when I was five, the story of my father’s church, with high quality stick people and line stair illustrations. Twelve staircases was not a topic to be ignored. Since then I have variously written, illustrated, published, designed, had printed, and/or hand bound ten titles. Four titles illustrated for commerical sale, six for charity. I teach basic bookmaking techniques, repair books both at the University Library and on private commission, and do calligraphy. And when I am not doing all that, I work in the library - mostly with the books.
