/Portfolio: Triplet Photo Albums

Written by Marenne Hoeksema on May 23rd, 2020 | no comments

Photo albums for the Triplets Bram, Luuk and Tijs. Made after the design of the birth announcement card. The moon/ the balloons in the right top corners are made as an inlay with the name in gold level with the rest of the book. Images are made with black texture-foil, shiny gold foil and biotop white paper. I also made 3 matching mini’s.

/Portfolio: Ingrid’s Study Guides

Written by Marenne on January 14th, 2020 | no comments

These books were commissioned by Ingrid, who needed readers for a masterclass she was teaching. The 15 books are bound with the Long Stitch binding in a valleys of a concertina cover. The three parts of the reader are separated by sewn in tabs. The title is visible through a window in the cover and the books close with a paper string and button closure.

/Portfolio: Holiday Cards 2019

Written by Marenne on December 24th, 2019 | no comments

My holiday cards for this year were made using the eco-print technique. At the end of spring I set about to collect a bunch of vern leaves. I boiled these in water with madder-powder and printed them on alum-soaked aquarel paper by steaming them, sandwiched between two tiles. I transformed one side into a decorated ‘Christmas’ tree and the other side into pines in the snow. The text and stars/snowflakes were cut with my new cutting machines – small lines are a breeze now!
