Here are samples of her brilliant work.
Many of Elizabeth's books are made from maps which she sources at second-hand book fairs and market stalls. In this way she is able to match the maps to customers' requests for specific areas to be included.
She tries to find double sided maps, however sometimes she dyes the back of one-sided maps, using greens and browns to complement the colours of the maps.
She also uses atlas pages which are more colourful (and double-sided) but is restricted by their size. Her map books have matching boxes.
Tiny books can also be made from sheet music
The "bookshelves" below are made from print trays, and the books made from books to match the commission, eg from a birdwatcher, or a gardener
An example of another type of keepsake book, displaying family photos -
a great birthday, wedding or christening present
After finishing her talk, Elizabeth had the tough job of judging our annual Members' Challenge, which this year was to make a World War One postcard.
