Deciding to create rougdrAftbooks grew as a natural extension of the personal work I was making. It finally became real when I knew I wanted to make the books I was making for myself on a larger scale for other people. It came out of this core belief that art and utility can live together in the same object. We need not save our precious things for special occasions; the special occasion is always now. I want to foster this idea by making beautiful books that people can use every day to document the moments of their extraordinary lives and the world around them.
