Shelter Bookworks is an edition binding studio located in Western Massachusetts, owned and operated by Amy Borezo. We specialize in edition binding of books and presentation boxes for artists and fine press publishers.

Amy is also an artist working in the book form. Her artist's books have been shown widely and are in over thirty artist's book collections. She is represented by Vamp and Tramp Booksellers and Lux Mentis.

Amy Borezo received an MFA in Painting/Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2000 where she studied Letterpress and the Art of the Book with Walter Feldman of the Ziggurat Press. After graduating, she worked as a specialist at a library bindery and for Master Bookbinder Daniel Kelm, focusing on the editioning of artist's books and boxes with a high level of craftsmanship. Shelter Bookworks opened its doors in the Orange Innovation Center in 2007. Amy also teaches Book Art, most recently at Dartmouth College.

In 2012, Amy hired on Lisa Hersey as an assistant in bookbinding and letterpress printing. Lisa studied book art at Montserrat College of Art.
