...out that is.
That unavoidable day has finally come, the day in every book's life when they've all found a home. Today is that day for Belle du Jour. I'm a little sad they're gone, but happy that they're being cared for by so many of you. I'll not be the worrisome parent, I know they're in good hands.
Goodbye Belle du Jour. I'll miss you.

If you want one, it may not be too late!
I may be sold out but there are a few retailers that should still have a supply of them. Stuart Ng Books, Brand Studio Press, Gosh! in London and probably also the Labyrinth in Toronto.

There are still plenty of copies of Bookplate Betties available. The limited edition however is nearly depleted (only 2 copies left as of this writing)

UPDATE: DEC 10, 2008
The limited Edition of Bookplate Betties is now also sold out.

Don't know if you read this because I'm posting late but...besides the obvious tools you use, is there a speciall kind of pencil you use? Water colors?, prefered brush sizes? How do you apply the shadows? Type of markers.?I know it's a lot. Thanks for these very beautiful posts!

I've been getting a lot of technique requests lately so I'll be making a more in depth post soon with a progression and lots of details on my materials and method.
Probably not till January though.

Matt J said...

Passing through London on business this week I made a quick stop @ GOSH! & managed to pick up BOOK PLATE PLATES and BELLE DU JOUR-just in time for Xmas. Gorgeous books-smaller than I had imagined, but perfectly formed.
There are still a few copies left downstairs for those in the London area.

As of 17th January, GOSH! in London have 8 copies of 'BELLE DU JOUR" left so you'd better be quick!

We still have plenty of "BOOKPLATE BETTIES" though.
