But wait there’s more……

This is a pile of books that I made to be sold in a craft shop, they didn’t sell for all sorts of reasons, main reason they were priced far to high, second reason they are a bit intimidating and they are thick.

I made them they way I like books to look and feel, Epic Fail.

I needed to make books that would be attractive to people who buy stuff in a craft shop.

These books are great and all but I had them in the wrong market at the wrong price and I took the feedback personal.



I am especially fond of this beautiful and lovely gray book.





I couldn’t love anyone who didn’t love this paper.

Hi Deirdre, just wanted to say thank you for such a great course at the baltic on friday
i am wanting to make 12 notebooks, exactly as you taught as i am having a macrobiotic cookery demo here at home and thought it would be great idea to give everyone who comes a personalised notebook for the day, can i buy items i need locally in newcastle, i am from durham, or indeed from you. sorry its such short notice, the idea just came to me today to offer this little personalised notebook for people to jot deas into during the demonstration.
thanks for such an inspiring event and for your drilling of only using the best raw materials, my little boooks are fab.
