The decorated papers of John and Jane Jeffery.

Listen up this is important stuff. In Edinburgh there is a couple of people called John and Jane Jeffery and they hand decorate paper, actually that does not even begin to explain what they do, they recreate decorative book paper from the 18th century. I fell across a photo of a book that used the papers and I hunted them down. I phoned them up and got a small set of samples and I just said send me a selection of paper I think I sent £50 or more several times. I ended up with a drawer full of it. I used it in books.

Leaving aside the blessed Marthe Armitage I reckon that John and Jane Jeffery are the most impressive workers in craft in the UK at the moment. I love them so much that I am not going to give you their phone number, because they are not geared up for telephone enquires, they don’t have a computer, they don’t even have an answering machine.

I noticed that Conways of Halifax bookbinding supplies are stocking the paper and I would contact them to buy it.
