Haein Song is a fellow of Designer Bookbinders and an artist working primarily with books as her medium.

She uses traditional bookbinding techniques to create unique or limited edition books, while employing a variety of printmaking methods (including linocut, drypoint, etching, cyanotype, monoprint and letterpress printing) for artist's books and for the endpapers of the fine bindings.

With a strong interest in the physicality of making and understanding the process of making, she explores qualities of transience, fragility, intangibility and absurdity in both the concept and aesthetic of her work.

Her fine bindings and artist's books are held in many private collections in the UK and USA, and in public collections including British Library (UK), Bodleian Libraries (UK), Wellcome Collection (UK), V&A National Art Library (UK), Library of Congress (USA), Stanford University (USA), Getty Research Institute (USA), Yale University (USA), Harvard University (USA), UCLA (USA), UC Berkeley (USA), Amherst College (USA) and Morgan Library (USA).

Born in Seoul, South Korea, she now lives and works in London, UK.
