Fiona's finale

Here at last are my first alphabet letters all complete and made into their books and a box.

I have been doing my layered italic on white, then attaching to black and using a touch of gold leaf on each letter.  I used what I call a lotus fold which is quite springy!

I made three books, each with 9 'pages/folds' with the addition of a cover page in the first book.  Each book has a gold-leaf covered cover and the three books are housed in a little handmade box; each within their own compartment.

They are the liveliest little characters, always wanting to bounce out of their restraints and take up all sorts of shapes and forms - they are a real delight to interact with.  Here they are quiet and contained, and also showing off!

The last shots how you what fun they were for me to play with.

  1. So elegant and complete within itself to the world but with a little surprise spring of joi de vivre inside

  2. Fiona, these are so cute, your talent and skill is amazing!

  3. I love that they have a life of their own when unrestrained. What fun.


Thanks for taking the time to comment on our work - we really appreciate it!
