Something wonderful and shining just arrived from Fast Printing!
It’s a set of foil-printed bookplates for book signing, for Angela Slatter.
These hind girls (and Angela’s books) were also the inspiration behind the July calendar:
Here’s a quick glimpse of the process:
The lesson I did learn was probably not to work quite so large for a bookplate again — it took up most of a sheet of A4 paper, and I had to adjust some of the tinier details for printing.
Dancing in the dark…
For comparison, here is the full art, side-by-side with the bookplate. And I am delighted with how it turned out.
Oh my gosh, those perfect things. They are so utterly gorgeous! Would one be able, in the future, to purchase such signing plates for oneself? Or would it be a new commission?
Thank you so much! These were an Angela exclusive, so it would be a new commission, yes.
