how the future will imagine now

I was having a conversation my friend who was telling me about London Mithraeum an archaeological discovery in London of the Roman era, nearly 2000 years ago. As she explained to me what she had learnt it prompted me to think of the similarities to two books I had read recently: The Power by Naomi…

are you a book monster?

Do you have piles of books waiting to be read? These book monsters will conquer them in no time! I love making these little book monsters. They are all one of a kind and I’m using my tiny leather scraps for the appliquĂ© and all hand painted. I hope they brighten someone’s reading, diary, planner…

the importance of books

The threat of ‘books will become obsolete’ gets thrown around every time some new technology emerges.

The newest colour addition to the bookmarks collection… I love this lime green, it so fun, bright and refreshing. Paired with this racing green suede lining it’s pretty lime-esque.
