I've met some cool people, but Rich Troncone is one of the coolest. He's a northern NJ bookbinding master who makes custom sketchbooks, journals and all sorts of beautiful books.
I can't accurately describe how beautifully made his books are. He's going to be at the Hawthorne Library's Annual Outdoor Art Show and Sale on Saturday, September 19, 2015, 10:00am – 3:00pm
Check out his site and contact him:
