About The Forgotten Library

The Forgotten Library

The Forgotten Library takes inspiration from vintage and antiquarian books repurposing them into unique and unusual cards and gifts.

I enjoy finding new ways to repurpose books and similar ephemera and have been creating items since 2011. Not every prototype is a success but I continue to experiment with what can be done. I currently work primarily with collage to create designs for cards. Alongside this I wrestle a vintage foil printing machine and traditional type which doesn't always want to work as it should do so the output of these items is irregular.

It's a one person operation alongside a full time day job but I do get a little 'help' from two inquisitive cats who enjoy testing the boxes that supplies are delivered in.
