This day last year, I launched the 2016 Book of Days, so it seemed perfectly auspicious to launch the 2017 Book of Days on this same date!
It is full of all-new paintings and illustrations to accompany you through the year, and measures 210 x 148 mm or 8.27 x 5.83 inches (approximately A5 size).
The full colour covers are beautiful, velvety-feeling and hard-wearing:And the inside leaves, printed on heavy, silky paper -perfect for writing and drawing on!- with miniature landscapes painted throughout: little houses, trees, fields and fences 🙂
On the back page there is a little envelope for all the small notes and receipts you may want to keep: mine parted company with the cover early on last year, so we have a new glueing system in place to ensure they stay put! (Images below from the 2015 Book of Days; the layout remains the same, but the illustrations are all new)
The book is ring bound with a metal binder; this gives great flexibility and strength, as well as looking lovely… And I have penned a new invocation for 2017 too…
(I made a little film of the 2016 Book of Days- but I am having technical difficulties as usual… arghhh! But I am hoping to inveigle one of my delightful sons who knows of such things and upload it over the next day or two…)
As always, the print quality is absolutely superb- thanks to Data Print, Athy!
These 2017 Book of Days will be available from, and posted out, at the end of November.
EDITED TO ADD:
notebooks, prints and cards will be available in the coming days too! 😊
-ORDERS FOR 2017 BOOK OF DAYS ARE NOW CLOSED-
I am so grateful for the kindness and interest in this project so far. For all the love and goodness sent my way, -along with the many orders!- I give great, deep thanks and an enormous virtual hug!
