I love books, so to create storybooks combining my pictures, poems and prose with my own choice of book-design and materials was an easy decision.
While the decision was easily made, the creation of my books takes many months of dedication, passion and learning.
My books are completely self-made, starting with the idea, the making and selection of pictures, the writing of poetry and prose, the printing, bookbinding and finally the publishing.
As they are hand-made, all my books come as limited editions, signed and numbered.
I already have lots of ideas for my next book...

Transcending - The story of a beautiful death (2 of 13 available)
The idea for this book was there from the beginning. All elements from the use of one single roll of expired Ektachrome film, over developing in my own darkroom with all the possibilities and chances for failure, to the materials used and the book design are there to support the story and the feeling behind it. Even the text in this book is hand-written.
All papers are made by the Japanese company Awagami who produce the most beautiful, high-quality, archival fine art papers.
The images are printed on thin Kozo paper, the soft cover is made of Shin Inbe and the cover card printed on thick Bamboo paper.
All images are printed on my Epson SureColor P9000 printer using Epson ultra chrome HDX colours.
This book comes in a limited first edition of 13 (plus 2 Artist Proofs). Each book comes with a unique cover image so you will not receive the one shown in the video.
Please select your shipping option from the drop-down menu. I recommend insured shipment as the risk of loss or damage is otherwise with you.
Dreamwalking - The Forest (no longer available)
This book was made in 2 limited editions one on delicate Mitsumata paper (see video) and one on Kozo paper.
