I obtained a qualification in Debrecen. I became certified bookbinder in 2008 but I did not get the chance to follow and prosper towards a career in bookbinding. I was working as a folding machine operator for a short time there and eventually I moved to London, than I got married and settled down here.
I’ve been bookbinding for many years now, mostly making A5 notebooks.
For me it is important to be involved in every step of the process:
From folding the paper sheets into signatures, stitching the signatures into
book block, and marbling the paper that I use for cover is all part of the process of creating my original books.
Being able to use decorative papers, give my book that extra mile.
I enjoy what I do and have a huge passion for it.
That wish, to build a business based on my creativity was always inside me. And finally my wish came true when I started my own bindery in spring/summer 2020.
When I had the idea to open my shop I was looking for a name which reflects to the bohemian style. But I also wanted to include my name.
So I changed one letter in bohemia and it became bohenia. This is how the name was born.
I also like that decoding where ‘bo’ reflects to book and ‘henia’ is to my name.
