Beth Freeman-Kane

 

Beth Freeman was born to South African parents in Australia in 1966. The family returned home to South Africa in 1970, where she has lived sever since. Miniaturism emerged in Beth's creative endeavors from the tender age of six, together with a fascination for all living things. Her talent and passion for "creating in little" came quite naturally, rather than being a conscious decision. Throughout her formal education, this was generally considered a flaw by her teachers and tutors, and concerted efforts were made to correct this tendency! The idea that art should be large to have any substance or validity was a constant theme. In the end, her stubbornness and inner drive kept her focused on what she knew she was best at. Her art evolved over many years to take on the unique form we know today. She is now a professional artist with an extensive following of collectors.

Tine Krijnen

Miniatuurboekbinden Tine Krijnen , IGMA Fellow, exsists since September 1995. I became fascinated with miniature books  at a demonstration of old professions where I demonstrated bookbinding.

Miniature pop-up books became my specialty and since I started making pop-up books I have published 7 different titles the latest is The Model Menagerie from 1895.

Besides pop-up books , I also publish historical books, such as Mappe Monde a world Atlas from 1700 and a fairly new one Collectively Speaking by Kay Browning (2017)

 

Because I know how fun and fascinating it is to create your own books, I also sell multiple kinds of do-it-yourself kits with clear descriptions. The experienced miniaturists will find printed sections which they can bind books on their own.

I regularly give workshops and teach students miniature bookbinding
