Did you know…You share 50% of your DNA with a banana? Which famous historical event you share your birthday with? What the number one single was the week you were born?



The Book of Everyone is the perfect gift for someone you love. This one of a kind gift is a book full of stunning artwork, glorious personalised facts and fun statistics. The Book of Everyone can be made in minutes, customised, previewed right away, printed and dispatched to you in under one week!

This Christmas the wonderful people at The Book of Everyone have teamed up with the charity Age UK and with every book you buy it goes towards the “gifting” of a book for an elderly person who may not receive a gift. Helping to bring a smile to an elderly person’s face this Christmas (a time which can be lonely for some) because after all amazing people deserve an amazing gift.


The Book of Everyone is a nostalgic, beautifully designed 50 page book that offers options that are affordable for all budgets from, Digital £7.50, Paperback £19.50, Hardback £29.50 and Deluxe £49.50.

To make The Book of Everyone as a gift for someone, all you need is their full name and date of birth. If you can not remember their exact birth date, don’t worry as the clever inbuilt Facebook feature can help find the details for you. For a free preview just enter the details of the person you would like to make the book for (this t

akes under ONE minute!) and you can see what each page of their book will look like in seconds.

Posted on 06 August 2014 by Chris Ford

Stickerbomb Skulls_3D

Stickerbomb Skulls is the latest book in the Stickerbomb series, featuring peelable art illustrations of skulls by a mix of international artists. Skulls are a highly stylised and extremely popular visual icon that are used extensively in the worlds of fashion, jewellery, graphic design, music, street art and tattoos.

Stickerbomb Skulls_Spread_1

When I was asked to review this book I couldn’t believe my luck. I collect skulls and love street art, so reviewing a book about skull stickers done by some great artists was a gift

Stickerbomb Skulls_Spread_2

From the cover to the stickers, this book oozes quality. Top quality production and materials make this a sure fire collectors item. The stickers can be removed from the sheets , or actually pushed out keeping the back intact enabling you to take them with you to tag or bomb

Stickerbomb Skulls_Spread_3

Some of the images are pure works of art ,some comedic others quite serious studies. Skulls are used in modern culture extensively today so this book will appeal to not only skull and sticker collectors , but to followers of design , especially those interested in street and contemporary art

Stickerbomb Skulls_Spread_6

With sticker collecting being at a high , this book can really do no wrong

From it’s perfect size and format , to it’s high quality production , I implore anyone interested in this culture to buy this book

Stickerbomb Skulls is available now from Amazon currently at £11.16

“No one knows what really goes on inside a prison unless they are invited through its iron doors…”


Award-winning journalist and author Angela Levin takes a look inside Wormwood Scrubs, the UK’s most notorious prison opening up this secret, extraordinary world as never before – at a time when the prison is on a knife-edge.

From Angela’s unique position of Chairman of the Independent Monitoring Board – the prison’s watchdog body – she had keys to all parts of the prison and access to all its inmates, officers and governors. She witnessed firsthand the lives of the prisoners – including the mentally ill, the addicts, foreign nationals and recidivists who cannot cope in the outside world. She has listened to the concerns and fears of the prison officers at a time when violence against them is increasing and the prison is struggling to cope with massive cuts. Angela highlights the faults in the system and recommends some essential reforms.

Wormwood Scrubs: The Inside Story is an important and revelatory book that will shock, disgust and amaze all who read it. The book is available from www.amazon.co.uk as an e-book (£3.99) and paperback (£9.99) Now.

bookbindery case for the Kindle

Posted on 28 February 2011 by Chris Ford

The new Kindle from Amazon is a real game changer,  and so I think are these cases from PadandQuill via the Etsy site.

A beautiful bookbindery case creating that feeling of holding an actual book in your hand…because you are!

Premium quality materials are used to create an Italian bonded leather cover and then lined with premium bookbindery paper.

A precision-engineered Baltic birch frame router cut to within 1/20,000 of an inch to snugly cradles your Kindle3. Sound impressive? It is. Rubber bumpers are then added to the frame to keep your Kindle nice and secure. (We test every case with an actually device to ensure a seamless fit)

A Moleskine style strap that keeps your case from opening when you want it closed

Kindle Case

Precision crafted to cradle and protect your device, with a classic red bookmark allowing for quick and simple removal.

This really is a fantastic and they haven’t stopped with the Kindle, they have created similar cases for all sorts of other devices including the Iphone ,  I’ve just placed my order and you can too by heading over to Etsy.
