New Year Tootings!

2 Jan

I may have had a blast of a cold for most of December, but managed to keep my crafting hat on ready for the festivities. Below is one of this year’s collaged greeting cards, inspired by the disruptive yet beautiful blizzards that hit the city. Click on the image to see more card designs, plus a rather unusual illustration….

I’ve been busy preparing for the ten week Handmade Books course that starts in 15 days time, sourcing binding materials, book cloth, all sorts of paper and ephemera and most importantly producing example books to demonstrate various techniques. Keep visiting these pages as they’ll be updated daily with links to good materials sites, various recommendations, images of my work in progress and of the letterpress in action…

Today I will be mostly: mending my monster t shirt, completing the colours of Iceland folded map book, experimenting with some new folds and making the first cutouts for a storybook with a trap door. Plus bidding on some type on ebay tonight. Fingers crossed!
