Carousel Books!!

Liz Powell's book courtesy of Carol Barton' blog

"This toy and movable book called Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, was published and patented in 1950 by illustrator Ionicus. This volume is called a carousel book because it opens to create six three-dimensional scenes of the story."
My latest fetish thanks to a birthday book from my Dad on bookcrafts!
These are one examples by other artists of books we will be creating in our range of Christmas stuff avaliable soon!

Finger puppet frenzy!

It was a finger puppet frenzy today as the Ink Table got covered with felty goodness.

A swarm of speckled frogs (without the speckles), Piggy pals and camel goodness took over the tables and the sewing machine for some wild puppet action.

Look out for our next insallment where we post some puppet pictures!

We'd love to see you all again, drop by anytime you see us in the store and introduce yourself, come to a workshop or just wait until next market, we'll be there with bell on!
(it will be Christmas after all)

Poetic Justice Publishing workshop

Poetic Justice Publishing held their first workshop in our space today (of course, pjp is heavily weighted with The Ink Table's people but that's beside the point) and it was wonderful.
It has also made me realise that we may need even more space if we want more than 8 around the tables! I guess if we have bigger groups I'll just have to move my sewing machine!
Speaking of sewing machines, Sophie just moved in! We have our newest Ink Table member in the badge queen of the blogging world. We'll post photo's of her space soon so keep a look out!

It was a lovely day in the ink table, the girls came around in the morning to chat and admire the store while the babies played on the floor. The plumbers fixed the roof and the books grew in numbers! We're getting stocked slowly and have had more interest growing in our little country town.
Tomorrow there will be a writing workshop in the store at two in the afternoon held by Poetic Justice Publishing Inc. and we're hoping it goes swimmingly!

Another big day

It was another big day at The Ink Table, a family affair with a stream of visitors coming to check the place out.

Bailey's been chillin' in his Kindercot and making sure mummy and daddy remember to play with him at regular intervals.

It was productive time though, with more small vintage illustration journals being produced and stamped.

No real time in the studio tomorrow until after 2pm. But Bailey and I are there most of Monday so come have a look see.

We're starting to really get settled in the studio. The counter is in and looking beautiful now that we've begun using it. We've also stared to make marvellous things in the space.

The feeling in the shop is beautiful.
