Bookbinding Artist

Kelly Odette Laughlin made her first book when she was seven. She titled it Animals of the World and crafted it from legal paper, staples, markers, glue, and collaged animals. In high school, she discovered the rich history to the art of books and learned her first bookbinding stitch. From there, she studied Printmaking and Book Arts in college. And she went on to become a teaching artist, writer, bookbinder, curious thinker, and founder of odette press.
