MEG CAVEN, CLIENT - "Caitlyn made a piece for me with which I proposed to my now fiancee. The small book in a double clam shell was EXACTLY what I wanted. This was no small feat. I approached her with MANY specifications, and little idea as to whether or not my ideas were even possible. I wanted a small book, with pages that were envelopes, with a secret compartment to hide the ring in. Caitlyn managed to successfully execute every last detail. She asked plenty of questions to ensure that I got exactly what I wanted, and genuinely seemed excited by the project. She was a pleasure to work with. At the end of the process, my fiancee and I have a totally unique piece of art that holds so much of our love. Everyone who hears our proposal story and sees the book is totally blown away by it. I feel so lucky to have worked with Caitlyn."

 

MELISSA, CLIENT - "Caitlyn worked on a project for me at the North Street Bennet School which was a Christmas gift for my boss. He had lost a leather book that he had for years and said it could never be replaced. I remember sitting down with Caitlyn and discussing in length what I was looking for-a black leather book with flaps on the inside of the front and back covers along with his initials embossed on the front. She provided fabric and color samples along with different fonts and sizes for the initials. The book she made was better than the original and my boss loved it! His initials made it stand out and personalized it for him. She made sure I got exactly what I wanted and stayed in touch every step of the way as it was a time sensitive project. This very special gift is one he talks about to this day and definitely does't let out of his sight! I would recommend Caitlyn for any project."

 

APRIL RICCIO, CLIENT - "I recently worked with Caitlyn Thompson on a bookbinding project. I found Caitlyn through the North Bennet Street School in the North End of Boston. I was thrilled with her work and would highly recommend her talents and abilities. The care that Caitlyn took with my precious books was if they were her own. I was impressed with her attention to detail, her passion for bookbinding, her timeliness in getting the job finished and her true artistic talent. Caitlyn included me in every step of the process and I learned to rely on her innate artistic style. Please feel free to contact me as a reference. aprilriccio9@gmail.com"

 

DAVID G., CLIENT - "Caitlyn has been my go-to source for unique presents and keepsakes for my family and friends for the past two years. When you are looking for a quality pieces of art that also have a great deal of functionality, I would be hard pressed to find someone more talented than her. She is able to talk you through what you are looking for as well as provide stylistic advice that elevates the aesthetic beauty of the gift. Naturally, she is a perfectionist who is commited to her craft from beginning to end: I've even had her next-day fedex me last minute books! Caitlyn is a talented bookbinder and a pleasure to work with."

 

C. L., CLIENT - "Caitlyn Thompson is great at what she does! I wanted to bind some play scripts, and she talked through the process with me and worked with me to figure out the best way to do it. The scripts look beautiful and totally unique. I am really happy with them, and Caitlyn even made beautiful bookmarks to go with them. She is an artist!"
