Fish or Cut Bait was inspired by the wonderful fishbone fold and my dislike of making decisions.

"Fish or Cut Bait" is a limited edition artist book. Each book comes signed, dated and numbered. The cover is a mono print on printmaking paper, hand-cut in the shape of a fish. The pages are folded vellum, digitally printed with pop-culture advice on how to make decisions. Opening this book, by tugging on the head and tail, is very fun. The fishbone folded page (closely related to an accordion fold) kind of springs open. You can see from the photos above that from the top the fold looks like...fish bones. The book comes with a band, printed with a fish hook, that holds it closed securely. The closed book measures 4.25 x 6 1/2 ".

Please note that these are hand printed. The book you receive might have slight variations from the one pictured above.

I will walk up to the post office and mail you this book via the U.S. mail within two days of receiving your order.

This is my second journal from PurpleBeanBindery and I can assure y’all that I’ll continue to buy from Anna for as long as I can pick up a pen and write. My first journal from her store was a gift, and it’s the first journal that I have ever filled completely. The quality is amazing - thick, soft paper that doesn’t bleed, a cover that will withstand being tossed around backpacks, etc. I genuinely love these journals and I’ve gained so much from writing in them. Also, Anna is so kind and helped me create a custom journal that matches exactly what I was looking for - she responds quickly and consistently!! I wish I could give this a million stars.

The journal arrived a day earlier then expected. Packaged nicely in extra paper. So beautiful. I was tempted not to write in it, the paper quality is so thick and the lush. It’s wonderful! I’m glad I went with the warm orange Queen bee journal. So much fun writing in it and can’t wait to visit the shop and order bday gifts for others! Thank your for creating such a wonderful product. !!!

I love Anna's books! I almost can't wait to finish filling up one because I know I will be ordering another. They are well-made, fun and creative, the paper quality is amazing (and very satisfying to draw and write on) and quite simply, treasures. In addition, Anna's attention to packaging detail and quick shipping elevate the book buying experience! Thanks, Anna for bringing such joy through your art and craftmanship.

I have just been sitting around my house, holding this notebook in my hands because it’s so incredible. And what fantastic customer service - USPS was being pokey but Anna was great and never got tired of my questions. <3 THANK YOU!
