The guys at Laurence King kindly sent me a copy of Graphic Design Visionaries by Caroline Roberts, founder and editor of Grafik Magazine, and after sitting down for a good read (with a cuppa tea) I wanted to share it with you guys. The book, which is due for release in August, is a celebration of 77 of the most influential Graphic Designers since the 1800s. I’ve never really seen a book that features so many important...

I had seen the image below a couple of times before I was able to work out who had made this amazing piece of art, but finally I can thank Isaac Salazar! WOW, just wow! How amazing is that? I love books anyway, but I just think this is amazing! And to think that these are created by just folding the pages of a book! AMAZING! Find more of Isaac’s creations on flickr! Here is the...

Before christmas we had been doing some bookmaking and I made 3 books in total (view them here)… And then we were set the challenge of making a book with content, which was also made from unusual materials. At first I was quite stumped on what I was going to produce – it’s always harder when the possibilities are endless I find?

I added the last of the requirements (a non-photographic image e.g. a scanned image) to my designs and played about with them until I achieved an effect that I was happy with…. Ta-dah!

I completed my first handmade book 2 weeks ago, here she is: I should have sewn her a lot tighter, but lessons have been learnt and of course, I...

I know my blogging performance has become shockingly non existant this month, but as always I have the perfect excuse/person to blame; the male species 🙂 (note the smile) Yes, it would appear I am under the spell of a gentleman… so blogging has taken a back seat for a little while! HOWEVER there is no doubt that my passion for all things Graphique is still very strong, only the other day I found myself drooling over a book....

I love books…. Twilight, Harry Potter, Gossip Girl, Diary of a crush…. all the typical teenage girly books. But I like to read about other things too… I confess, I go to the library quite a bit… Wisbech, Gaywood, College – I have membership to all 3 :). I am pretty sure one of the College librarians knows my name Haha. I go to the college library like once a week at least… and I...
