Simply an amazing Temari ball. I would highly recommend getting one from Yellobole. You will be just as blown away as I am. A+ in quality, design, and workmanship. Thank you! :O)

A Phoenix from the ashes

About 18 months ago I feared that my working life was over. The economic downturn in the UK resulted in redundancy for me and many like me. Too young to retire and too old to be an attractive proposition for employers, I worried for a long time about what the future might hold.

I had been an Archaeological Illustrator for more than 35 years;
I loved what I did and losing the opportunity to continue that work was hard to come to terms with. However, after a few months, I began to see that a whole new world of opportunity had opened up. I was suddenly able to devote my time and energy (and redundancy payment!) to a new career as a bookbinder. I've always made books and once I had plotted my course, I couldn't believe I hadn't done this years ago!

The result is Yellobole Books and Boxes. I strive for perfection in everything I make. And I am happy. I hope that shows, too!

    I didn't play with dolls much as a child - I played 'Offices'; my fascination and joy concerning everything paper-related began early. I folded and sewed paper into books long before I knew there was such a thing as Bookbinding.
