At last, the book is finished! Yaay! 😄 I made marbled paper look a hundred years old, so the book looks like it's 500 years old, but rebound a century ago. I'll post more pictures of it🔜

I bit the bullet and just did it! With a toddler on my lap 🤦🏻‍♀️ Most of you said exposed binding so here it is, I had a bit of a brain fart with it for a while so I spring cleaned instead 😆 It's far from being givable let alone sellable but I'm just pleased I finally finished it! It is adorable and I will make more ☺️🖤

Another week, another city.
Last week I was in Berlin visiting my baby granddaughter and this week I’m in Paris with my Mum and daughters belatedly celebrating Mum’s 80th birthday! 
These are the views from our apartment (Notre Dame on the right in the second photo) and a couple of my favourite Coptic stitch books to reference the colours of the French flag 🇫🇷 .

Did you know that the perfect binding method and the double fan binding method are both made using primarily glue?
.
The "perfect" binding is used for your standard paperback book, and it is functional and cheap to produce, but the spine will crack and break over time. The double fan method is used by many book conservators and is used to produce heavy textbooks. It allows the book to lay flat and is much more durable.
.
The glue for this rebinding is all dry and has set up nicely. This project is a gift for someone very dear to my client and is replacing a perfect paperback binding with a hardcover leather one.

Fifteen copies of my new book ‘Species’ were ready for the St Bride Wayzgoose yesterday. More will be made this week. I’ll be in touch with everyone who has messaged me about it tomorrow — copies have been put aside. Thank you! It’s listed at £25 on the website, but for a short time you can buy it for £20 with code BLENNY. I’ll be taking it to Shipley too for the Wayzgoose on Sat 8th June. Absolutely delighted by the positive response to it yesterday — thank you everyone for your feedback and support! I couldn’t do it without you.

I have been working hard making LOTS of new things! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 Here is a timelapse of me in the studio, handbinding some new recycled notebooks. A very meditative process, once you get into the rhythm of it (and manage to thread the needle every time! 😅). In between developing new work, I have been decorating, teaching print classes, and took a short trip down to London with friends, which is always so fun, inspiring and exhausting! I have loads to show you, including studio/printmaking work as well as etsy/stationery items. 🖤

I glued the spine, and let the glue dry under a huge pile of books (as I don't have a press). Meanwhile, I cut the cloth for the covers. It's coming together nicely.🔜

Making a mock-up for a book project. When I was in Art & Design school in Offenbach, Germany, eons ago I had a “paper” class. Amongst things like paper fiber direction, which felt a little dry at the time, I also learned how to bind books by hand. I still have the folder I made. Haven’t done it since and I’m really enjoying the process. #grafikdesigner #makingbooks #bookbindery #psugd #buchbinden

It’s pretty simple (in theory). If you want to be at the same time point of arrival and origin, if you want to define the present and also shape the future you have to research constantly (technique and business models) and teach the young well. In order to do both, you also have to write a precise vocabulary, create a grammar, and generate concepts. This is what @nikoromito does with @cristianaromito and their ever growing team, this is how he gets to share with the world an idea of the quintessential I-T-A-L-I-A-N flavor so powerful it’s becoming a definitive reference, from fine dining to fast casual, from luxury hotels to hospitals. It takes a village, it takes a system. It takes a little bit of crazy too 🤪. Which is why I chose to start my journey here #thenewcucinaitaliana #makingbooks #whatitalyis #abruzzo #grupponikoromito @ristorantereale @accademianikoromito @spazio_nikoromito_milano @spazio_nikoromito_roma @alt_stazionedelgusto

A chance to play with cyanotype at home today after the class last weekend with @kitmartinphoto Still need to work out the best spot in our house for coating the paper - some of the paper today was too thinly coated as I couldn't see well enough in the dark room (also known as the toilet!). Might try the shower room instead as I could use fluorescent light in there. #cyanotype #makingbooks

A Creative Slob Comes Clean!!! Part 2

This is it folks. To hold myself accountable and to clear my studio and my spirit, I am sharing the sad state of my creative space. Doing my best @mariekondo imitation. Working through piles and piles. All good stuff. I just do not need all of this anymore. 
Letting go. Clearing. Releasing. Restructuring my life. I am a master hunter and gatherer. Bottom line...That means chaos. 
If you judge me, so be it. I chase shiny. I go get it. I’ve got it here somewhere. However, I can’t seem to find it when I need it. 
Good for the soul is purging the stuff that has kept me stuck for too many years. Freeing one foot at a time. Send me positive vibes as I go blindly into a state of being I do not know. .

I’m running fewer workshops this year to spend more time in the studio- it can be hard to find a balance sometimes between teaching and making! But I’m happy to say there are a few new workshops planned for the autumn, more details soon (or sign up for my newsletter on the website- link in bio)

Feeding the covers into the press. Hopefully these and the belly bands will be dry enough to crease, fold and bind today. Fingers crossed...🤞

Gettin’ some books together for @dearhandmadelife for the #patchworkshow. If all goes as planned, I’ll be sharing my poems n’ stories with unsuspecting adults n’ young’uns for a little Store-Y-Time in Ventura. And if I’m diligent, I’ll have one or two more books come June!
Ps... If you want to buy one, let me know. I might put an Etsy shop together again, but for now, there’s always direct message and venmo.

Anyone else have a tough time getting back in the swing of things post-vacation? I have so much stuff in-progress and nothing finished! Ugh. Today is my day...I feel it...really.

When your boy makes books and they have cardboard covers and copyright warnings. He writes stories about his hippo and her spaceship, and about an unlikely friendship between a calf and alligator. My youngest wants to make books to sell on the front lawn to the neighbors to fund his Lego needs.

A quick casing-in of a rough sample book, quarter bound with leather and bespoke marbled paper. The internal paper is hand sewn in sections and lightly rounded, the leather is pared by hand. The final versions will be a bit neater, maybe not so fat, but will still feature a version of this marble, which you can’t see here, but has hints of gold and platinum in 😍
