Susan Mills



Artist, Educator


Susan Mills is an artist who works entirely in handbound artist-book form. With 25 years of experience organizing and teaching bookmaking classes in institutional and alternative settings, thousands of people have learned to make their own books by her instruction. Susan’s teaching practice is fully integrated with her artistic production. She focuses on working collaboratively to produce large handbound editions and teaching large groups of people to bind books of all sizes with several different techniques. She runs Full Tilt Bookbinding, a series of intensive single-session bookbinding classes in New York City, and teaches at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, the Cooper Union Continuing Education, and the Center for Book Arts. She also created a biweekly community-based podcast, Bookbinding Now.
