Bound in velvet with hand-stitched cordé and beads; paste-wash doublures; sycamore and laser etched acrylic box with aged brass fixtures. The book is about the aftermath of the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers. The binding design, which extends onto the box, focuses on what was there before; what has been left behind; and what was, and is, still missing.

Bound in Velvet with goldwork embroidery and seed beads, pastewash doublures and wooden box.
The designs on the front and back boards are of simplified generic pine leaves, but when the book is opened it reveals the shape of a female waist.
by William Shakespeare
This small book is bound in suede with twisted silver wire, seed beads,freshwater pearls and twisted wore clasp. The book is shown standing on its sycamore box.
The design aims to show the feeling of the spirit of the shrew in the play trying to break free from the traditions that were supressing her; a person who in contemporary terms could be viewed as a feisty heroine.
