A Harvest of Souls - stand and deliver us from evil

Caroline Leonard

The first book from C.C. Edmonston
https://www.ccedmonston.com

A fantastic read with many twist and turns that you don't see coming. Very well written and hard to put down. Buy your copy of this twisted, gothic tale of blood and betrayal to discover what secrets entwine these tangled, lost souls like the threads of a hangman's halter.

Notorious highwayman Samuel Shanklin is stretching his luck while the noose of Tyburn gallows threatens to stretch his neck. But one final robbery before he hangs up his pistols puts him on a slippery path with the woman of his dreams ... who may just prove to be the stuff of nightmares. With his gang turning against him and his family unraveling like the stitches on a stolen purse, Shanklin must fight to swing the odds in his favour before he winds up swinging from the wrong end of a rope.

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.
