This rainbow of beautifully illustrated vintage spines shows a collection of the well know ‘Andrew Lang Fairy Books’ from the 1900’s: anthologies of collected fairy tales edited, as it turns out, mostly by Andrew Lang’s wife Leonora and a team of other women. Of course, back when they were published, a book would not have sold with a woman’s name on the spine. I have taken this opportunity to redress the balance of history by putting Leonora in her rightful place!

I love painting the details of the scuffed corners and worn edges – the evidence that these books have been well loved, playing their parts in peoples life stories….
I feel privileged to be able to do what I love for a living, and to have others appreciate it. My book art work brings together my loves of painting, typography and books. I love to paint Bespoke Shelf Portrait paintings: clients gather their favourite editions together for me to paint. As I paint, a picture of their lives and loves grows across the canvas, across the shelf. Which books would you choose for your Shelf Portrait?
