Bespoke Photo Presentation Boxes

Caroline Leonard

If you're looking of a new way to store your photos we've come up with a bespoke presentation box to do just that. It's about time we start printing photos again for keepsake and prevent them from being lost in the never ending digital cloud. 

 

Jewellery Presentation Cases

Caroline Leonard

These pieces were produced for fine Jewellery maker Benjamin Hawkins, whose studio lies in London's jewellery quarter Hatton Garden. The creation of bespoke presentation books and slip cases are the accompaniment of every fine piece of jewellery commissioned. Each customer will receive a book containing all of the paper work, a write up of how it was made plus images, along with a painting of their piece!

Henri Matisse Collection - Bespoke Box

Caroline Leonard

Consisting of different types of chairs covered in Henri Matisse paintings and cut outs, ‘The Matisse Collection’ reflects the reduction of Matisse paintings to décor. Resembling images from a sales catalogue the work hints at the relationship between the consumer and art whilst (humorously) reflecting Matisse’s view that “Art should be something like a good armchair in which to rest from physical fatigue”.

We produced five bespoke clamshell boxes for artist Keith Turner whose works (re)construct imaginary spaces using models, plans, magazine covers miniature dioramas and computer-generated virtual interiors. You can see more of Keith's work at www.keithturner.co.uk

 

Portfolio Presentation Folders

Caroline Leonard

Matthew Kitchen Design Bespoke Slip case and Presentation Folder hand made in our bindery. The presentation folder was screw post bound, with screws only visible on the inside. It was wrapped in a bright green Brillianta book cloth which certainly makes it pop! The Slipcase was again wrapped in Brillianta from chosen from their natural linen range.  Both cases were foiled in matt silver to finish of this smart looking presentation piece.

A BOOK A DAY...

Jason Mortimer

A book a day in Hay is compiled by Emma Balch.  Emma grew up in a house full of books. They were piled up on every available floorspace, crammed onto bookshelves onto bookshelves that touched the ceilings, tucked in nooks around the fireplace and stacked on the windowsills of the bathroom. Boxes of new books were stacked next to the staircase. One of the beds was held up by thick, hardback reference books.

 

A Book a day

 

As each book in Hay has a story of its own Emma thought it would be fun to go out and discover some of the quirky, obscure, valuable, bizarre, and must-read books. Each day she will post a single book introduced by someone in Hay.
