The journey to the Handmade and Bound fair was an epic one... wading through the protesters at st pauls, traversing across the pilgrim's passage, and up the mountainous staircase of the fair Bride.. we eventually arrived.. to be met with the most gleaming, glistening jewels awaiting plunder. Beautifully handcrafted books, intricate prints and the most lavish of drawings. We acquired a number of shiny delicacies, one such find is the work of screen printer and book maker Otto.
Here is his website http://www.ottoillustration.com/
We also found out that St Bride's offers letter pressing, screen printing, and book binding courses.. a perfect venue all in all, and a lovely way to wilt away some of those precious Sunday moments. A potential place to practice those good old screen printing ambitions! http://stbridefoundation.org/visit.html
