Last week I was invited to the private view of St Bride Unveiled – the latest must-see exhibit for design, typography and print geeks. The St Bride Foundation was established in 1891 in the centre of the publishing hub on Fleet Street, but of course communication via typography and print go back a long way before then! St Bride is home to a large collection of historical items – I’d love to delve into the archive...

Before you look at the book, just watch this video of people’s reactions first! Watched it? Now scroll down… 🙂                         I’m a bit book mad at the moment (Thanks to a new project – more on that later!), but Tree of codes is no ordinary book!

So yesterday afternoon I continued on adding to my series of books (which I still haven’t named yet! – I must get around to this soon!) Last week I did not take pictures of anything but I can tell you that I decided to have a go at making a hardcase japanese stab bound book so I was making my hard covers! Yesterday they were nice and dry and ready to be bound, so I pierced...
