I made-a-book!

We now have these 'make-a-book' kits by illustrator, book artist & printmaker Alison Hardcastle - so I thought I'd have a go (results below!). Each kit (there are 4 designs) has a screenprinted cover & A4 sheet, a needle & thread, and an instruction sheet. What you end up with is a fabulous little Alison Hardcastle book or notebook.

The technique is really simple but amazingly effective and if you are new to bookbinding I can almost certainly guarantee that once you've made your first book you'll be thinking about making your own from scratch. Perfect introduction for any budding artists or illustrators in the family. Each kit is £8.
