Summer is over and I’m back in the studio again, and this past week has been very productive!  First up we have six eyecatching notebooks that feature the character cards from a vintage Cluedo (Clue, for the Americans reading this) board game.  The covers have been made using a vibrant deep yellow book cloth, so these books have a certain tactile appeal as well as being very bright!

Those of you with sharp memories will recall that last year I picked up some vintage board games at a car boot sale, and if you’re really on the ball you’ll know that about a week ago I was having fun with some PVA glue and Monopoly money.  I’ve finally finished a few notebooks made with the board games so I thought I’d best show them off.

It’s now 2012, and I’m finally having another go.  Today I spent all morning in my studio cutting up vintage board games and planning what I’m going to make with them…

1st January 2012 – “Whodunnit?”
