This time last year I was a visitor to this delightful book fair, with promises of more information about some of the things I saw there. This year I will be taking part. I have been busy working on my MA this year, hence the silence here. I am looking forward to returning to blogging to share some of my creative adventures soon. The fair is on Sunday 18th November. More details can be found on the Handmade & Bound website.
"Mandy Prowse studied painting and printmaking at Maidstone College of Art. She explores natural and human forms and the interconnectedness of all things. Themes in her work relate to birth, mortality and metamorphosis. Her altered books are minimalistic and organic combining a modern aesthetic with an almost Victorian touch. If you told me these books were 100 years old I wouldn’t think twice about it.”
