A Coptic stitch bound journal which allows the pages to lay open flat. Lovely to write in, journal or draw and paint in. The book is 15 x 15cm square with 48 pages (96 sides) of recycled 140gsm cartridge paper. The cover is one of my own design of cards, a heart paper collage of printed papers.
The back cover is brown kraft card.
The book has a matching card, available to buy together as a unique and special gift, perhaps as a birthday present. Designed and made by The Creative Space.
I am a paper artist, a designer and a poet who uses mindfulness as a foundation of all the creativity I undertake. I support the Just A Card campaign to encourage people to buy from Designer/Makers, Independent Galleries and Shops.
I have spent my life creating and making, encouraged by my Mum and Nannan, who taught me to sew and knit. A love of books and words has featured heavily in my life so the inevitable next step was to make my own. A visit to an Artists’ Book Fair in Sheffield several years ago reinforced this, and in 2015 I made and auctioned 50 books as a fundraiser for Plum Village. Now I make books to sell, as well as teaching mindfulness and creativity workshops from my studio. Making books is a mindful process for me, particularly taking time to consider how the cover will look. I hope you will enjoy receiving them as much as I enjoy making them. They are a beautiful gift for someone special (and that someone special could be you!)
