Exactly as described! This seller was a pleasure to do business with.
I have a bit of a hoarding disorder!
I initially began making books because I just couldn’t find notebooks that were just right for me – so I started making my own. Now I make notebooks, cards and brooches all with vintage book illustrations.
To be truly honest, my paper addiction began well before I knew exactly what I was going to do with it all. I just kept coming across papers with such beautiful designs, colours and textures and knew I would make something with it all.
The pieces I am making now are all using vintage childrens book illustrations that are from books that have fallen apart and were ready for the bin. I found them initially by chance piled up in the corner of a charity store ready to be recycled - and now I am searching high and low for images. I have just as many books now though that I just can't bring myself to chop up.
I'm inspired by books I coveted from the school library, Golden Books I browsed through at the supermarket checkout with my Nan & cordial bottles shaped like koalas and kangaroos with built in straws you had to bite the end off to get to the cordial.
