About Hollister Books

Karen D Hollister

I'm thrilled to be an artist that works with handmade papers, fibers and metals to create books, framed art and CardART.  


Each book is created by hand with attention to each book.  Featured books include wine, recipe and inspiration journals, guest, baby & wedding books, travel and memory journals.  There's also specialty books such as the Hidden Message book, Chinese Star and Holiday books.  


And if there's special writing needed inside the book, I do that as well.  I wouldn't call myself a calligrapher, but I do have a special penmanship that seems to suit the handmade paper and books very well.  

I also am so blessed to have several wonderful artists that I use in my books.  They are both highlighted below!


If there's something special you need and don't see it here on my website, I will go the extra mile to create it for you!  Let's talk!
