Much of a muchness

Things that make you go 'hmm'…

Normal service has resumed

It’s been a hectic week with a visit from two of my sisters and my nephew and niece. Then number 2 son arrived back from a holiday in Los Angeles accompanied by two friends so we were full to overflowing. So no time for making books, although the ones I have already made were admired and I have orders for Christmas presents. As soon as they left I got down to work, but my attempts to try a new technique for a sketch book were scuppered when I realised I didn’t have the right bit of kit to punch holes through the covers so I have ordered the tool I need (a wad punch apparently), left that book half finished and gone back to the old tried and tested method. The Japanese Chiyogami papers I used are stunning and I think this is one of my favourite books so far. Although the two papers are highly patterned, it does work. What do you think?

    I LOVE the papers! Especially the end papers. Where did you get them?

    They are from Falkiners in London. I have raved about Falkiners in past posts! They do mail order.

    I had trouble looking at your web site but found it eventually. (I think that there is a typo in the link) I like your work a lot. It would make beautiful monochrome book covers!
    Thank you for your kind comments
