Since I was a little girl I've been making dens....and don't think I'll ever stop..........

I've been making some small (about 5x7"/13x18cm) sketch/notebooks to sell at the East Oxford Farmers and Community Market on Saturday. It's held in East Oxford Primary School from 10am until 1pm.

This one is covered with 'found' text and includes a beautiful piece of 18th century French handwriting.....part of a rent receipt

I'm really pleased that I remembered how to stitch the pages with Coptic binding........I haven't done it since Uni............

This one is made with copy of a house blueprint and a small window with a transparency of anothr blue print.

This one is covered with vintage map from an old school atlas and some more of the 18c handwriting.

This one is covered with vintage woven rambling and cycling map, complete with the handwriting of a previous owner.

The one below is covered with newsprint written in beautiful Farsi script (Iranian/Persian) .........'s fastened with two small vintage fabric covered buttons.

And finally this last one is covered with screen printed paper..........

....the images are taken from vintage photographs and mono-prints of vintage photo's.

....and it even has a little pocket inside complete with another even smaller notebook......

.....and more vintage french handwriting on the cover.
