Sampling & Shipping

I am accustomed to sending cloth & paper swatches, as well as ribbon and foil samples. I am always happy to suggest combinations to complement a color scheme or decorative theme. My protective packing for shipping is meticulous. Photos of past projects can be provided via email.


Angela Liguori: Italian designer and book artist now living in Boston, where she teaches bookarts at local institutions. She also imports luscious Italian cotton ribbons & collaborates with letterpress printers, illustrators, and Bari.

Alyson Kuhn: Writer on the Left Coast. Her favorite topics include paper and printing, art and design. She loves to interview people via phone – and then sends them real mail. She taught Bari to hand-fold envelopes during the heat wave of 1995.

Michelle Litvin: Photographer of people, places and things. She stores and displays her prints in drop-spine boxes designed and built by Bari.
