Sealed With A Fish


I’ve been enjoying making fish sketchbooks, and have finally come up with packaging I like. They’re individually packaged in a cotton fiber vellum folio, and sealed with a fish.



There will also be a kit of three blank fish sketchbooks, with some bonus printed fishes for you to play around with.


I have a little more photography to do, then look for them tomorrow in the shop!

      Scarlett is *very* busy being her one-year-old self. Right now we’re evaluating how much she’ll be upset by the ongoing 04 July bomb show — opinions vary — but Brian gave her fresh King salmon trimmings from dinner… I trust her basic instincts to shelter in place.

      I’m glad you like the fishes, Keli. I’m working on a fabric pattern (curtains! comforter!) and a petit point pillow pattern, because I like them, too :)
      Well and of course they get their own instruction sheet. The lovely white page stock is enough heavier that the page count differs from the classic sketchbook or road atlas, and then there’s the photographic matter of different endpapers and and ephemera pocket. Each sketchbook is a potential jewel, and I’ve no interest in muddying the waters of excavation. Or some other mangled metaphor.

    The packaging is exquisite! I like the stylized fish very much – they remind me of Haida art.

      I’m so glad you like the packaging. I want each one to be a dear offering, a sincerely limited edition of books, of quality materials. As I mentioned before, this fish sketch is one from a series I played with when I was exploring surface pattern design a few years ago… 1:12 scale offers its whole own set of design parameters, especially with printing on fabric. To be continued!

      Pepper, your work is my muse and inspiration. May we continue to innovate and reinvent what it might mean to be a modern miniaturist. To all the makers!
