Book Catch-Up

Life is really busy here as always, but I am managing some book-binding work, in amongst all the rush.  So, I  thought I'd just post a little update on what I have been working on recently: 

A Coral-pink leather journal with light blue longstitch binding. 
 Lined with a Cath Kidston designed paper... 
 it contains lined pages, with the lines printed in pink 
and the pages have a floral design in a kind-of watermark print.

An Artists Book.  
This has stiffened covers of black leather and is stitched in a coptic style with pale orange thread.
The covers are lined with a hand-marbled paper, by artist & bookbinder, Rhonda Miller... 
The pages are three types of artist's paper - cartridge drawing paper / pastel paper / watercolour paper.

This journal has covers of softest leather, in lovely aqua blue.  
The floral design is raised-embossing.
  It has plain white pages, with cover lining & endsheets of this great birdcage patterned paper.  
The paper even has glittery bits, which is fun.

I showed you these fun little 6"x4" notebooks... 

So, I added a couple more to the collection - fun, aren't they?

And I've been making more rainbow notebooks - this one is 7"x5", with pastel pages in 10 colours.

I showed you this very large photo album recently, which I sent as a gift for a friend with a new baby boy.
It was well received, so I'm really very happy about that!

And currently, I am working on two large albums - one with a cover paper you may well have seen a couple of times before, but the other will have a very lovely, summery design paper, which I have never used for a book before now, with a very unusual paper trim at the bound edge of the covers.  The binding for this is a bit experimental too ... 
I hope all will be revealed very soon!

and if you made it this far:
Thanks for Reading! 


  1. You have been busy Lizzie. I love the birdcage paper - as well as all your books.

    1. Thanks Sandie, I love that birdcage paper too - and there's some left for another project!

  2. As always, I am in awe of your skills and each book is beautiful in its own way.

    1. What a nice thing to say, Karen - thank you!

  3. That soft turquoise blue one is just lovely - and I can think of a young woman who might really like it ... You make the loveliest things :).

  4. Just popping by to say thanks for my postcard in the postcard swap! My blog post about it goes live tomorrow.

    BTW - beautiful journals!
