New Artist on Cherry Picked For You This Week is Jools Yasities

We are very excited to have Jools Yasities join our illustrious group of artists this week. Jools makes exquisite handmade books with gorgeous textile or leather covers. These books take several hours to make, and sometimes even days, as so much love and devotion goes into making each one.

Tall Leather Hand Bound Book £23.99
This is an elegant, tactile book incorporating 10 signatures of 16 pages each, making 160 pages in total, in plain white, unlined paper of 90gsm. A feature seam decorates the front cover, oversewn with black thread on this butter soft leather. Coptic stitching adds to that extra special handmade charm, and ensures the pages lay comfortably flat when working. The inner cover sports a complimentary multi-striped heavyweight paper. This book is the perfect size and weight to travel with and write or draw in style. It would make a wonderful present for the special person in your life or a daily treat for yourself as it makes a great diary.
