Shanna Leino is a book and tool maker living and working in Harrisville, New
Hampshire. Her love for early book structures such as the leather covered
Coptic and Ethiopian led her to tool making. There was a need for a tool she
didn’t have, and she found that making it was as much fun as using it.
Shanna has taught book making classes for Wells College, Garage Annex School
for Book Arts, Columbia College Center for Book and Paper Arts, and Penland
School of Crafts. Her book and tool work can be seen at www.shannaleino.com.
