Mid-summer?? Madness!!

Welcome to

Does it feel as though we are half-way through the year to you?

Here in Scotland at this time of year we are used to just two hours of darkness overnight but this morning the weather is so “dreich”, (a beautiful Scots word that perfectly describes the awful gloomy, wet and cool weather we are experiencing) that I was close to putting the heating on at 7am this morning! The only thing that lifts my spirits a tad is the our 2 Call Ducks and their ducklings are having a ball.

There is a lot of news coming through at the moment, I may have to put another newsletter out later in the month, but right now I would encourage you to have a look at the new book Michael Harvey that is hot of the press and in stock right now. I have it featured on my Book of the Month page and you will find a link at the top right of this page.

Other new books that I have recently loaded include:

The final volume of the The Saint John's Bible - Letters and Revelation is in stock for those of you that are collecting this amazing piece of work and the second of 3 books by Susan Sink on The Art of the Saint John’s Bible – A Readers Guide to Wisdom Books and Prophets. AND, I have at last finally been able to source copies of the BBC DVD The Illuminator – A Bible for the 21st Century. You can either follow the link by clicking on the title or you can access all Saint John’s Bible products here.

Other recently additions to the site include:


B1274 – Masters – Book Arts – Major works by leading book artists by Julie Hale and Beth Sweet

B1270 – How to Make Books by Esther K. Smith

B1197 – Scribes, Scrips and Books – Book Arts from Antiquity to the Renaissance by Leila Avrin


B1282 - Calligraphy Essentials by Cari Buziak

B1281 – Edward Johnston: Lettering and Life by Ewan Clayton

B1255 – Tibetan Calligraphy – How to write the alphabet by Sanje Elliott

Letter Cutting

B1280 - Eric Gill and Ditchling – the workshop tradition

B1230 – Cutting across Cambridge – (David) Kindersley Inscriptions across Cambridge by Lida Lopez Cardozo Kindersley

I think that is enough for now but I have a feeling I will be in touch again later this month.

Happy writing!!
