Meet Bookbinder Klara K

Swedish born Klara Kölqvist is a young, successful bookbinder located in Copenhagen’s cosy city area, Christianshavn.

From her charming workshop Klara K practices the precious art of bookbinding.

Her approach to the proud craftsmanship is traditional, but she constantly seeks to bring the art of bookbinding into a modern world. “Classic – with a twist”, as she says. Her assignments and products range very wide, and despite her quite young age, Ms. Klara K has more than 10 years of experience within bookbinding.

On a late summer morning in September, we popped our heads into Klara’s workshop and met with her for a chat about bookbinding in a modern world, unexpected turns in life and the Prince of Sweden.
