After giving up many years of full time employment, I rather unexpectedly found myself training as a bookbinder. This has led me on a journey into repairing books, making new books and the asociated art of designer bindings, and now teaching.
I run one day courses through the winter months from my home in Aylsham.
I have exhibited with the Designer Bookbinders at the Flow Gallery in London, and in 2004 and 2007 received awards in the annual Designer Bookbinders competition.
I am currently exploring moving the book into a more sculptural form.
And I've written a book:
TWO POINTS EAST by JUDITH ELLIS
A View of Maritime Norfolk with illustrations by the author and a few red herrings...
£14.99 hard cover
THE RED HERRING BOOK OF FOOD FACTS
A simple guide to the world of digestive health, this small beautifully produced book explains simply and clearly how our bodies process food, what that food is composed of and what you need to know to shop, cook and eat for optimum health.
It is delightfully illustrated by Janine Pope and red herrings appear throughout the book flagging up interesting facts and generally looking cheerful.
