About

Milis Books is a creative, innovative bookbinding business run by Eilis Murphy.

I create one-of-a-kind handmade books and boxes for bridal parties, artists and institutions. I offer an individualistic approach to bookbinding where I collaborate with the client to create a highly-customized product that reflects the client’s vision.

After receiving a First Class Honors degree in Fine Art Print from the National College of Art & Design in Dublin, Ireland, I went on to do a 3-month internship at the Center for Books Arts in New York. This was a brilliant experience where I learnt many bookbinding techniques whilst fortifying my interest in the area.

Since then I have been consolidating my skills through regular training with master bookbinders in Berlin, England and Dublin and through master classes in such places as West Dean College and the Society of Bookbinders.

All of my binding is carried out by hand with a emphasis on design, durability and precision.
