Handmade books and custom greetings cards

Nottingham, United Kingdom | 817 Sales

Announcement    Covid 19 update - although many businesses are having to close, I am still able to operate as I work from my workshop at home, and we are having no contact with the outside world at the moment! I am working inside my normal lead times but deliveries may be affected - please bear with the delivery companies.
For international orders - there might be delays in delivering your orders, but the shipping companies are doing their best to cope with the sudden increase in on-line shopping. Please expect up to 2x longer delivery times for orders outside of UK.
Please stay in, and stay safe - we have to protect each other!

I design and make handmade books, Birthday cards, Custom made cards, Artist cards, Wedding gifts, Christening gifts, engagement gifts, birthday gifts and anniversary gifts, and I personalise them to make them extra special Gift giving is all about connection, and I love the opportunity creating handmade goods allowing for that.
My illustration work is now available as personalised greeting cards or as art prints. I love to make my cards special to the recipient and can include a greeting or poem on the inside, and often incorporate a greeting on the design of the card too. It is always special to receive a card, and how much more when it is an artist illustration tailored to your requirements!

Every handmade book I make is unique, designed often with my own illustrations, and hand bound.

I love to create items that will not be replicated anywhere, reflecting as they do my personal interests in history, philosophy, art, literature, nature and photography. A handmade book is a keepsake that creates a connection between the commissioner, the maker and the recipient. It is imbibed with the care and thought that has gone into it's creation and it's purchase.

About modestly

On Etsy since 2012

Crafting a creative life making books, prints and cards

My favourite thing is making hand made books, made to order cards and prints.
Handling my handmade books will connect you to the universe - they are all made with a deep curiosity and respect for the world we inhabit. Each book is unique, designed often with my own illustrations, and hand made. And giving handmade is always special - both for the giver and the recipient.
I love to create items that become part of someone's story, reflecting as they do my personal interests in history, philosophy, art, literature, nature and photography.
