Holmes Wood is 10!

Last night I was invited to the Holmes Wood tenth birthday party and book launch at Ransome's Dock in Battersea.
What a great party! Lots of people were there that they had worked with over the last ten years. Clients, suppliers, friends and family made up the really lovely mix of people that I met. Founders Lucy Holmes and Alex Wood have established a serious company with a great reputation and a fantastic body of work but also managed to keep a real sense of fun (... for example, see their lovely aprons on this blog!)

The book called "First Ten" is a comprehensive record of their work for large clients large and small. Superbly written by David Gibbs with much of the photography by the prolific Phil Sayer. Although the material (Heaven 42) wasn't from Fenner Paper, I can easily forgive that oversight as the material is perfect for the job!

The book is pictured below with the now world famous red bag (see their website and you'll see what I mean).
Above are some spreads from the book although it hardly gives you a good idea of the quality of the publication! It has been beautifully printed by Gavin Martin.

Below are some of my truly awful pictures from the party but it gives you a flavour of the evening...

Thank you for a lovely evening
