Plainly Spoken – Tawn O’Connor

Tawn O'Connor

Tawn O’Connor

This binding is made from work clothing, honest materials stained and paint-spattered from honest work. The earbuds bring this classic work uniform – T-shirt, work shirt, denim jeans, and leather boots into the 21st century, and are a visual reference to a “speaking book.” The long single-strand end doubles as a place marker.

Tawn O’Connor is a bookbinder and bookstore clerk. She is fond of repairing books of humble origin, not particularly rare or valuable, but with great meaning to their owners, such as study Bibles with decades of notes handwritten in the margins.
