Look! It’s me on the cover of a book!! I was beyond thrilled when Catherine Aitken, tweed bag maker extraordinaire, invited me to be featured in her glamorous coffee table publication featuring some of Edinburgh’s finest makers. Imagine my delight when she gave me a sneak peek of the cover! All credit goes to my amazing photographer Susan Castillo of course, for this amazing still life she captured of my Tutti Frutti super bling cocktail rings. Catherine visited the studios of some of the city’s finest craftspeople and interviewed them to give you a unique window into the creative workshops behind the creations. The book is packed full of ‘behind closed doors’ photos of the artists at work and of their workshops, as well as some incredible product photography.
You can get hold of your own copy at Edinburgh’s own Blackwell’s book shop. They do free delivery too, so they can be your ‘local’ bookshop wherever you are, and we all know the importance of shopping small, don’t we? Here are just a few of the highlights to whet your appetite until your own copy arrives…
