BESPOKE HANDMADE BOOKS
Commissions and bespoke handmade book service is available. Please email to discuss any idea or requirement that you may have. These personalised, taylor-made books make perfect presents for special occasions such as weddings, weddings anniversaries or birthdays. It makes the only gift for someone who has everything. The chances are they won't have a handmade book, designed, planned and made specially for them.
It could be your grand-parents slides, which have been gathering dust in the loft for decades (see below); your husband's childhood photographs; an artist's compendium (see below); a collection of postcards (see below); a commemoration of some cultural events that happened the year of a loved ones birthday (see below). Other bespoke projects can be seen here.
Nana Lou's Postcards
Postcards sent to a two year old from her father whilst he was 'somewhere in France' during the First World War.
This was made on request of Nana Lou's grandchildren. Michelle Abadie scanned the chosen postcards, laid out the book, and bound 5 copies for the family and 1 copy for the Imperial War Museum, London.
A Grandson found his Grandad's slides when clearing out his house and he wanted to collate his favourite ones into a book to give to the family as a Christmas present.
