The idea was to make a book containing original quotes & photos from many I have been collecting over the last 10 years and compile these into a beautiful handbound edition as a unique book idea. Wanting to support my local printing industry, the pages have been professionally printed in The Whitsundays, Qld Australia, on high quality Parchtone Sage paper (176gsm) to avoid fading or other problems associated with home printing & to last (as a result it has increased the starting point for pricing by $25p/copy). The size is compact, comfortably fitting into your hands, slipped into a handbag or placed on a shelf beautifully being displayed. There have been pages printed for 100 books yet to be handbound over the next year. Each will be an individual art piece and prices therefore will vary according to materials used and extras added through inspirations from materials being used. These copies (two seen in the photos above) will be the very basic level "no frill", extending up to other copies, with covers made from any medium sourced suitable for binding; from various leather types (cowhide & authentic crocodile skin etc), boxboard covered with papers or fabric with the final embellishments of cover materials & decorations & varied closure straps: some will also have pouches, slip case or other forms of cases for protection & display….. I will only be limited by lack of imagination as to where the designs will go with their creation!!! Some of the other collections are seen in my Etsy Shop…………. So you won't be able to "Judge A Book By It's Cover" as all the inside content will be the same!!!


Below is the "Foreword" taken directly from the book:

Foreword
The making of this special edition handbound book, has been a journey in itself up to this point.........as any adventure worthy of note should be. In our present times, technology has taken us into the new & unpredictable world of ‘cyber space’, where so much is stored intangibly; on hard drives that can crash or systems that can fail in a moment. Call me old-fashioned, but I still like the feel of a book in my hands, the turning of a page and the visual banquet of words and images between its covers, and so wanted to preserve something of myself in ‘the old way’. The words come quietly persistent on the edge of semi-consciousness, formulating carefully from deep within; keeping me from sleep, until relenting, they are written down in the stillness of the night. Where these words originate I cannot say for certain and maybe cannot even lay claim to; channeled perhaps from the human universal mind to which we all have access. What I do know is that I have felt the power of their simple truth.
My gift to you is to pass them on!
I present simply through my photographs and writings a small glimpse into the inner & outer worlds I inhabit, that now have a most beautiful environment in which to breathe and thrive.
May Happiness always be your Guide
Stephanie Pollard


If you are looking for a uniquely beautiful, "Made from the Heart" present, for someone special in your life, these timeless books will be the perfect gift (or simply to spoil yourself & encourage your own inner hearing!!). They are not a mass produced item, as most books are today, and will certainly be a conversation piece for those who experience this work.


Any further questions or queries you have, I would be more than happy to help, so don't hesitate starting a conversation with me.

Thank you for your interest
Have a great day!

WHOLESALE?: Sorry I do not. I do not mass produce my journals preferring a labour of love approach to making something completely original & by hand; and my prices are not high enough to give big discounts so - usually, wholesale does not work for me.
