Poet Ingrid Goff Maidoff Encourages Joyful Living - 5 Stars!

Eternal Song, Honey Sutras, Happiness, The Abundance of Grace ... These are just a few of the wonderful titles offered by poet and bookbinder Ingrid Goff Maidoff on her website, now on and at artisan fairs on Martha's Vineyard.

It is the joy and meaning we bring to the lives of readers that matters most. Poet and artisan bookbinder Ingrid Goff-Maidoff knows this more than any other writer I've met and read! Her books are thoughtfully and carefully bound, using beautiful paper with delicate patterns and textures. Her words gracefully held within the pages are just as much of a blessing for the reader. Ingrid has an instinctive talent for bringing poetic words of wisdom with a spiritual tone to her work. You feel as though your soul is nourished when reading her poems.

My mother gave me one of Ingrid's books called "Wonderful You" as a gift about 7 years ago. I fell in love with the uplifting quotes and sentiments and have always kept it on the bookcase next to my bedside, to dip into when my spirit hears the call. I had the great pleasure of meeting Ingrid at an artisan fair this past summer on Martha's Vineyard, and I instantly recognized her style of writing and book binding techniques. I was overjoyed to have found more of her work and quickly snapped up several books to give friends and family as gifts. Recently I ordered a lovely book of quotes about courage for a friend. Not only did I receive this beautiful book, but Ingrid thoughtfully included a single sachet of jasmine tea and a little scroll with lovely, positive thoughts on living in a state of pure joy!

Your heart and soul will thank you!

With Blessings,
