Hand made artists books and greetings cards reflecting nature, illustration, poetry and literary quotation.I design and make Birthday cards.Custom made cards, Artist cards, wedding gifts, Christening gifts, engagement gifts, birthday gifts, anniversary gifts.
Each book is unique, designed often with my own illustrations, and hand made. I use premium papers, choosing the finish to complement the design. Some are accordion folded and some are coptic stitched to open flat as a book. The covers are chosen to complement each book's own character.
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.

I have more pictures of my work on my facebook page,

I have a range of handmade cards that feature a diverse subject range, and can be adjusted to accomodate a personal message on request.

I have added a further product range of reproduction great paintings, or details from them, on hand made mounts.

I can also make to order, please get in touch and let me know details about the recipient, and I will tailor a booklet based on their hobbies or likes.

Review from Commission :

"I approached Anne with a strong concept, vague description and tight timescale for creating a poem book with which to propose to my girlfriend. I had written a poem linked to her engagement ring and our relationship but wanted images to correspond to each verse and a stylised finish to bring it all together. I had seen examples of her work online and asked her to draw together the different aspects that appealed to me.

Anne worked collaboratively with me to create and refine a number of drafts before we went to print, ensuring that I was 100% happy with the final product. Her responsiveness, professionalism and personal touch made all the difference in creating a keepsake that my fiancée is thrilled with.

On top of all that, I found her prices to be very reasonable for the level of effort involved.

Thank you Anne, it was a pleasure to work with you. " Simon Scannell
