Hand Crafted Book


Many years ago, when I was a member of NorBAG (Northern Books Arts Guild) while living in California, a talented print artist, Brenda Tuxford, and I created a handmade book – the cover, the illustrations, the type, the bookmark!

Fiona’s Tea Party is a story about a girl whose parents live at a Victorian bed & breakfast, who coerces the guests to have a tea party with her since her parents are so busy tending to their full house. Brenda’s illustrations are what you might see in a dark, children’s book of an earlier era of England. Since she loved cats, a cat creeps into every page of her drawings.

Brenda has since passed on, but this signed book – or shall I say piece of art – is still available. It is listed on Amazon for $300, or you can view it in person at Eureka Books in Eureka, California.
