I create these miniature handmade books from prints of my illustrations and collected quotations, to celebrate my favourite stories and tales. In my illustrations I use a collection of my own drawings, things I’ve found, made and collaged.

I print and make the book from high quality paper, with a hard cover of found papers. It packs neatly into a hand cut and folded ‘take-away carton’ with a wire handle. 

Take your tale away with you to evoke all those childhood memories you have of cosy story times!

Ideal as an original new baby gift, 18th or 21st birthday or a personal keepsake, perfect for anyone who recalls vintage stories and would like a quirky original gift for themselves, a friend or family member.

Book measures 3.5 x 3.5 x 1cm. Box measures 4.5 x 4.5 x 4cm.

Commission Work from Alix Swan

Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.

Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.

This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
