Shiny new Stockists!
After a busy month of printing, folding and binding, I am delighted to launch a new range of products from The Book Tree Press. The range includes screenprinted handbound notebooks, seed packet cards, sculptural books including paper hot air balloons and our popular book trees. The focus of this range has been celebrating the sculptural form of the book and its tactile nature: special attention was paid to printing process, paper selection and the quality of every stage of the design. It includes several artist's books inspired by place, as in the case of Kirkcudbright - an artist's view, and inspired by narrative in The Red Shoes based on the tale by Hans Christian Anderson.
The launch of the new range coincides with a number of new shops kindly stocking products from our little press. In an earlier post I celebrated the launch of Craft House Concept which is up and running filled with a range of beautiful homeware. The Spider and the Fly is another new shop opened by Emily Chandler where the new products are also stocked. Edinburgh Printmakers continue to support the work of the press and products can be found in their gallery shop.
Finally last week I delivered a nice package of cards, notebooks and artist's books to The Marchmont Gallery. Thanks to the team in Marchmont who not only provide all my framing needs but also provide valuable support to both established and emerging local artists in Edinburgh.
