Bespoke books are handmade bound volumes with either 20, 30, or 40 fine art giclee prints on archival cotton fine art paper with pigment-based long-lasting ink, each of which is hand-annotated by the artist. Archival interleaf rice paper separates each print. The box is custom designed and artisan cut. Each of these bespoke books are one of a numbered edition only one. The following customisations are possible:
– cover image and text
– title (cover, spine, title page)
– page of introductory text
– images to be included in the book
I will work with you on every aspect to ensure the volume is exactly as required. We will set a time to discuss your requirements, in person or on zoom.
Lead time required is a few weeks; expedited service rarely available (please enquire by emailing Sara).
Custom Books are available for any prints from the photographic collections. See the Suggestions tab for some ideas.

BOOK AND BOX
Case bound, section sewn book. Book cover is artist-printed on Hahnemuhle fine art canvas. Book box is covered with cloth. Both have hot foil title – colour dependent on design.
Internal pages are the exact same as my other high quality fine art giclee prints. Using pigment ink and 100% cotton Hahnemuhle paper, the prints are guaranteed to last 400 years.
Fine rice paper is used as interleaf between the prints, to protect each of the giclee prints.
The book and box is approximately 30 x 30 cm. Some are slightly taller or wider, depending on specifications of the cover artwork and custom design.
