An international window for my unique books.
I started making books for my own use, using 'trial prints' as covers, but I never had enough.... so I started printing papers specifically for the purpose. This soon grew into making books for friends and then to sell.
I now make two kinds of books:
Notebooks, sketchbooks and journals are constructed from first principles to create handstitched, hardback books in multiple sizes, containing lined paper, good quality cartridge or watercolour paper. Each book is covered in one of my own papers and is therefore completely handmade and unique.
Recycled iconic packaging, collected for me by multiple friends and relations, is converted into eye catching multi-purpose books.
Flour packets make a suitable book for all those recipes from magazines or family favourites passed down from grandma, whilst large cereal packets or LP covers make great scrapbooks.
Yorkshire Tea creates a great landscape format sketchbook.
An A3 sheet of paper is ideal for that special gift and so I now sell paper for wrapping. Each sheet is actually a limited edition print: the silkscreen printing process encourages you to experiment with multiple colourways and patterns and so few sheets of paper are ever the same.
Owner, Maker, Designer
Having originally trained as a Fine Artist I now combine many skills to create hand stitched and bound books, using hand printed papers in my own original designs. I live and work in beautiful West Wales.
All my designs are created and printed by hand - this means that all are very slightly different. The books are usually individually made as no two sheets of paper look absolutely the same when printed.
A gentle reminder- Copyright of my designs remains with the artist and is not purchased with the item.
