Paper and Gifts

My name is Lou and I'm based in Reading, Berkshire UK.

I create jewellery and decorations using old and unwanted books.

I was inspired to start my business by a good friend, who had a second hand book business and a lot of unwanted or unsaleable books. I always keep in mind that I am recycling a precious object - a book, and that people love them.

I'm happy to say that after ten years I'm well on my way to my 13,000 sale!

My background and education had always been in art and design, and as a kid I loved to make and to draw, yet somehow, by the time I was 38 I was fully ensconced in an academic job that really had very little to do with hands-on making, although I did work with other designers. I had the urge to do something completely different.

I made the leap in the Spring of 2009, and set up Bookity a couple of months later, on a shoestring budget, in the spare basement room of our house in Reading, UK. My partner Matt made me a work bench out of an old door, and away I went!

Bookity became Gloria Monday, and has remained a one-person outfit, but now it's a fully fledged micro business. I'm grateful for this, and for being able to learn so much about the art and business of handmade craft.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

Q. Can I have two different place names on my personalised cufflinks or earrings?

A. Yes, you can! You can choose place names from any country around the world, as I have a wide range of maps.

Q. Can the maps show individual buildings or street addresses?

A. In most cases, no, I’m sorry. Most of the maps I use are vintage and don’t show that much detail. I do have street maps of major world cities such as London, New York etc, so please do check.

Production times

A. Do you have a production time as well as a shipping time?

Q. Yes. Production time is separate to shipping time. My production time is currently around 3-5 days, in addition to shipping times. I offer an upgrade to 1 day production if needed.

Shipping Address

Please take care to enter the correct shipping address. Customers are liable for re-shipping costs if they have provided an incorrect address.

I'll do my best to meet these shipping estimates, but can't guarantee them, as Christmas volumes, or bad weather impacts could cause delays.
