In just one week I will be in London to hang my work in the PRISM exhibition "Hidden Places, Hidden Spaces" which opens at the Mall Galleries on Tuesday 29th May. The telephone kiosk has been hired, the work is ready to hang and for three months I have been making and selling miniature books to help fund this venture. Even if I get to my target of a total of 100 books I will not have completely covered my costs! But it will be very exciting to see it all come together at last.
So fund raising has not finished yet. In addition to the original edition of 50 books I am also making 20 Jubilee books, half to sell in the exhibition shop and half to sell on Etsy - some of which you will already have seen. This weekend I decided to have a marathon effort and finish off the Jubilee ones.
And here they all are... stitched books with beaded spines.
Flag books with folded envelopes and coloured pages.
Folded blizzard books. Each one unique.
And each one encased in its own unique matchbox.
And as a result each day from now until the start of the exhibition I will be listing a new Jubilee book for sale in my Etsy shop. Today's book is there now*. And if you miss one of those, there will be another ten books available at the PRISM shop next week. As for me, I'm cracking on with the rest of the custom orders for miniature books, planning what form the final 30 books will take and dreaming of the day when I wake up and don't have any more to make!
* This one has now sold but come back tomorrow for the next one!
