Bespoke embroidered and hand-bound memories journal

A handmade book to celebrate the marriage of two very close friends. 

The embroidery design is on linen, with herringbone edging and ribbon detail. I used a combination of coptic and French link stitch to bind plain signatures, giving the recipients loads of space for documenting a lifetime of memories together!

Hand printed and bound book

A special commission to celebrate my friends new baby girl, Rosa!

 

I created original designs and hand printed them using lino on coloured paper to create a striking spine for the book and sections inside.

 

The front cover was also designed, cut and hand printed on buckram book cloth to reflect my friends love of all things letterpress.

 

The book was then bound using an exposed coptic stitch, leaving lots of room for adding bits and pieces as Rosa grows up.
