50th Birthday Book

Orders for bookbinding come few and far between these days, so when they do I jump at the chance, especially where there's a fun element in them.

This one, in it's gorgeous peacock blue cover matched the foil perfectly. The lettering was foiled both on the outside plate and the inside page.

Japanese binding is most suited to loose leaves as there is no need to sew sections together and the raw edges at the spine binding can add to the decorative feature.

These books or albums can be made as guest books or photo albums depending on the paper inside. This one is A4 in size and has 110gsm paper in. The paper is thick enough for guests to write their stories in and not have any 'bleed through' no matter what pen is used.

I love making personalised books and wish I did more. Sadly, the price of mass produced books makes orders come few and far between....except when people want something EXTRA SPECIAL and are prepared to pay for the time and effort bookbinders put into each one.

Wedding Thank You Cards

It's been a busy week.....Here's the latest items made to commission at the studio. A set of 80 Wedding Thank You Cards, foiled in a beautiful satin green......

The foil colours come in 14 colour which you can see here.

Foiling as opposed to simple printing gives an overall more classy feel.

Amy and Ian wanted something that would match the flavour and theme of their Wedding Invitations and Seating Plan.

I'm still here.....and not AWOL.....

It seems forever since I last posted here and to all intents and purposes it would be easy to believe I have given up on lettering altogether....but I've been busy writing articles for The Creative Spirit.

You can see the full set of my Motivational and Inspirational Lettering Art by clicking on the link HERE.

It's been great fun taking time off from conventional and traditional calligraphy and letting go and being a bit more free and easy with my letters. Quirky? Yes! Kitsch? Yes probably....and a whole lot of fun and everyone loves them! :o)

Over the winter, I need to get my website kicked into shape....both my site and my site. Both need a lot of time sorting out the chaff from the wheat. a great project for the dark evenings.

So I will be back the meantime you can keep up to date by visiting see you there xxx
