I've been waiting for the best moment to make some changes to my studio. It was never properly organized as when we moved to this house a year ago we made everything in rush and that's how it's been ever since then. Now I'm hoping I can finally do this in March. It's a good time for me as I have some new plans for my book shop too, and a change always makes me feel so refreshed. Meanwhile I'm planning and searching for ideas in what inspires me the most: supplies, and textures and patterns... Last week I've made a little trip to London and visited one of my favorite stores. I got a few papers, new bone folders and some beautiful headbands. But my latest acquisition of which I'm really proud is an old book press that I bought right here in Porto from a bookbinding workshop that was closing. I'm actually the third owner of this press, which initially belonged to a graphic arts studio. I love that it's wide and tall and I can use it for more books at the same time, something I wasn't able to do with my very old, little nipping press. The less exciting part is that it's extremely heavy, it took two man to lift it on the table and I wish I've done this only after rearranging my workshop!
