  • About / Bio

    I began making books while in graduate school studying graphic design. It was a natural progression for me as I was interested in designing books and loved everything about them, the feel of the paper, the cover designs, and browsing the shelves of a used bookstore. Bookbinding led me to box making and collage as I explored containers and covers for my books. Surface, texture and color all interweave to create an inviting and elegant design. I want the viewer to open the book, slide the drawer, undo the flap, whatever form of participation that piece involves. I work in paper, but incorporate metal, found objects, fabric and other elements to make each piece unique.

    Becky Broun is a native of Chapel Hill. She has been making books and boxes for over 25 years. She received a BA from Connecticut College and a MFA in Graphic Design from Yale University. She has studied box-making and book arts at Penland School of Crafts, Arrowmont and The Center for Book Arts in New York in addition to other workshops.
