Hello I am pleased to announce that I will be taking part in this year’s Pick Me Up festival at Somerset House from the 24th of April to the 5th of May.
The festival itself is a celebration of graphic art and design and has a huge range of affordable art, interactive events, showcases, late nights and general fun things to see and do. I will be working with The Society of Revisionist Typographers (or SORT for short). I have worked with them on a number of occasions over the years and we thought it would be good to collaborate and celebrate all that is printing and making of stuff! In our space we’ll be offering the public the chance to have a go at stab binding your own notebook and then you can print your own personalised cover label or ex Libris bookplate. So come and see and do.
The sun came out. Yay. So I took some pictures on the beach of 5 notebooks that I have been making.
This cloudy notebook along with others will be with me at Pick Me Up, Somerset House, London 24/04/14 – 05/05/14. I screen printed the covers by hand and stitched the book together with some colourful British linen thread.
Another stab bound notebook for your words and pictures. These notebooks are made with recycled card and the paper is plain inside.
I couldn’t help listening to Malvina Reynolds’ song Little Boxes whilst drawing these houses. I got very inky fingers with this one…..tee hee
The last of my five notebooks that I will be making at Pick Me Up 2014, Somerset House. Feel free to join me if you are interested and have a go at binding a notebook. You can also print a personalised letterpress label for your notebook with SORT.
