Starsmead Books


Most work on my Instagram page is available for purchase. At the moment I do not have a facility to sell directly from my website, so you need to Direct Message me via Instagram, or send an email for purchase details. From time to time, I send out more detailed information about new work that is available for purchase, including one-off special bindings. If you would like to receive these updates, please join my mailing list below. Note that this mailing list is also used for occasional letters to inform people about forthcoming exhibitions and workshops.

Here are some samples of work which I have for sale at the moment. I am offering postage free of charge in the UK (second class) for the duration of Lockdown.
