Rory Alexa was born and raised in Upstate New York with a fierce love for music and the fantastical. Her education began at SUNY New Paltz with a BFA in Graphic Design. Rory found her love for book binding during her undergrad years at New Paltz. She spent hours upon hours in the book binding room; experimenting, playing with different stitching techniques, and ways to bind all the pieces together. Not only is it fulfilling, it also provides a calm state of mind when creating something with your own hands. Rory is currently writing an original fantasy trilogy, owner of RA Press and head-binder of Book & Bobbin. She currently resides in Scotia along with my two cats and plant family.
