Today, in my letterbox, a piece from a favourite artist of mine – Bibliographica. Louise makes the most beautiful hand-bound leather books, just one look at a picture of one of her creations and my heart leaps. She has a blog here where she features some of her work. The detail, the love, the thought, the creativity, everything about them is so very special, and I had been wanting one of my own for a very long time. As part of my New Years Resolutions I have resolved to write down my journey this year, privately, to help remind myself of what it is I am trying to achieve. The New Year always starts out with such gusto, yet by mid-winter those promises are so easily forgotten.
Here she is – my memory keeper – The Daydreamer by Bibliographica. Hand-bound from reclaimed leather and fabric, containing 100% recycled paper that has been tea stained by hand, stitched together with an Irish linen thread, wrapped in sheet music featuring the lines of a song “we were meant for each other to have to hold and to love. You you you, there’s no one like You you you”
NB: My camera died on Boxing Day, so all pictures are currently taken using a very lo-fi Camera Phone. These pictures were very important to me, so I have chosen to add a slight amount of effect, to reduce the low quality grainy look. I’m sure you will understand x
