Today's artisan is a woman after my own heart. Like myself, she has a great love for books. Their smell, their appearance. How they feel. What they represent.
Teo, from Portugal, is a book lover at heart from the top of her head to the tips of her toes and those talented fingers, as well as a freelance artist. She comes from a family of painters and craftsmen and has carried with her a love for arts and crafts since childhood.
At TeoStudio on Etsy, Teo offers beautiful books with a vintage flair and breathtaking craftsmanship that she's created by hand while trying to preserve as much as possible the reality of the materials she uses and bring to light their beauty through craftsmanship and conservation.
With an eye for artisan beauty and the skills to make beautiful books that will last forever, Teo has carved herself out a niche on Etsy that is both breathtaking as well as fascinating. You'll love a browse through her shop, and if you're anything like me, be tempted to buy out every piece she has in stock!
And, for even more enjoyment, this is a shop that I also recommend browsing through her sold items. There's over 200 to browse through and because each of her pieces is a beautifully crafted piece of artwork, you're sure to enjoy taking a peek through there as well!

You can also visit Teo on the Teo Studio Website or stop by the Teo Studio Blog for a quick visit as well!
