It's a wrap!



WRAP

// a magazine celebrating creativity, featuring work by top illustrators and designers from around the world
// 9 sheets of exclusively designed wrapping paper
// coordinating notecards to the prints featured in the issue
// every copy is hand-numbered! Limited edition of 2,000 copies

WRAP is an illustration magazine with a unique concept, because once you've read it you can go on to reuse every sheet as wrapping paper.

WRAP is published in the UK and printed on FSC certified paper using vegetable-based inks.
There are no staples or stitches, so each sheet can easily be taken out and reused.

We are SO THRILLED to be stockists of WRAP!!
In stock now and only AUD$20 - we sold two of them the second they hit the shelves!!
Methinks I'd best order more NOW!!

Ms Pepper Puppy update time


Standing guard on the deck of Cooks Hill Books.

Interrupted her during her serious responsibilities.

Indignantly standing behind her safety barrier on the deck of Cooks Hill Books. Cranky because I'm not on the same side of it as her.
Ms Pepper Puppy now rules our lives.
And that is just fine with us.

Our friend Miss Kate

Who are you & why is your range called what it is called?
Miss Kate's Klipz. Originally I, Miss Kate, started making just hair clips but have now widened the range but love the name.


Where are you located?
Newtown, NSW

How long have you been creating your lush wares?
About 3 years now.

Do you currently have a favourite item in your range?
I like my flamingo hair bow the best -
but that's because I love flamingoes!


What motivates you to keep crafting/creating?
Seeing people happy when they buy and wear my items.

Are you someone who generally tends to buy Handmade over mass produced?
Yes indeed!

Why?
Handmade means it is special and made with love.

Do you have any new items in the pipe works that you'd like to hint to us about?
Not at present as I'm preparing to move house in the New Year.
But once settled, Miss Kate's Klipz will be back better than ever.
(We're so EXCITED for you Miss Kate!)

Do you also sell online?
I have a web page www.misskatesklipz.com that will also be ready after the house move.

Would you like for me to link to your store for those poor people not able to get into Blackbird?
When its ready - I would love that Miss Nici.

Are you sick of answering these silly questions?
Never.

PS. Miss Kate is a dear old friend of ours.
Well, she's not old - our friendship is!
Her range makes lovely little gifts!
