Latest on Japanese-style Hard Cases

The Blackbird Artists' Book editions are tantalisingly close to completion. Recently we did a lot of work on the cases, which was broadcast on our social media channels. This included making Japanese style hard cases.

Remaining steps

  1. Unique drawings included in each copy
  2. Covering with the black card covers 
  3. Signing by Claire Allen

We will return to this before Christmas, but it seems likely that finishing touches will take place in early 2022 due to other paperback editions that are behind schedule.
