Preservation of the Cultural Record at the University of Texas at
Austin.  She is always curious about new book structures, and is
especially enjoys the varied books folks have used for record-keeping
and accounting historically. Her work in Latin America has fostered a
strong interest in Spanish/Islamic influenced bindings and her father
was an amateur creator of western style laced and braided items, so
lacing was part of her childhood.
