Hot off the press // MiniEco: A Craft Book

Yay! A copy of my new book popped through the letter box today. It’s so good to see a copy in the flesh (- it’s been a year in the making).

MiniEco: A Craft Book

It looks lovely! It’s got a neon green/papercut dust jacket (which is really hard to photograph!) and is full of beautiful photographs and illustrations.

You can order a copy from The Book Depository, Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk. It would make a great gift for Christmas *^_^*

If you just want a quick look-see then why not order a copy through your local library instead?
