In Print - And A Book Launch

I recently received an email from Lewis Jaffe, who many of you will know from his excellent bookplate blog, that he had written an article about bookplate collecting for Antique Week magazine, which featured the meerrkat bookplate that I had engraved for him on the cover of the Central and Eastern editions:

I have been tardy in catching up with my appearances in print so here is another, an article based on an interview in a book edition of a glossy magazine circulated in Hong Kong:

Freshly Picked was published last week and I was very pleased to attend the launch party in the wonderful vegetable garden of the Hackney City Farm in London. The food was wonderful, especially the giant chorizo, snail and sorrel paella:

The vegetable garden is a lovely space and a great setting for the book launch party. I made a few small sketches while I was there. Here is a selection of photographs:

Back in the studio, I have been working on another series of engraved bookplates and hope to feature some of these in my next post.
