Designer Bookbinders


Here is just a quick post to say that there is a small piece in this month’s “Crafts” magazine about our local bookbinding star Angela James (see archive ” A Walk In The Woods” May’08 ). Along with 30 other members of the Designer Bookbinders group Angela was invited to design a cover for an exhibition celebrating the work of Welsh landscape artist Kyffin Williams. Her work will be on show at Contemporary Applied Arts this August and has inspired me to take a look at Kyffin’s painting which I am not familiar with.

Also today I have spent money I don’t have on paint so that I can try and do some designs on paper. I’m also looking into getting some lessons on Adobe Illustrator which seems to be what people “in the industry” want.
