All books in this book shop are made by myself in all aspects. I create the concept, illustrations, I screen print and bind. Some of the texts are mine, some are by writers who I work with on certain projects.
In the book shop you will find all books in the 'affordable' price range, meaning they are a little more expensive than mass produced books, but still in the same price class.
I also have a collectors range, those are high quality hard case editions, and you'll find them on my Artist page.
I am happy to do talks and workshops for schools and universities. Please contact me regarding fees.
I have been creating and publishing screen-printed books since graduating from an MA in Illustration at Kingston University, 1996. I now screen-print books at my workshop near Bath.
When creating visual narratives I experiment with new designs and try to push the boundaries of visual language. The picture books are made for adults, although of course can be read by children.
I show and sell work at international Artists' Book Fairs.

Books can be bought wholesale at 60% of the retail price +p&p, based on a minimum order of 10 copies of the same title.
All books are hand made and no one book is quite like another. There might be small 'imperfections', as screen printing is not a perfect science. If you are not happy with your purchase, I will accept returns or exchange for another item, but you have to pay for your own postage.
