Angela Szczypka, founder and creative genius behind UK-based Pinkworks, makes quirky, lovable plushies, or, as we call them in the U.S., stuffed animals. Angela sells her handsewn creatures on her site and at markets where they’re quick to find homes—which is one of the reasons Angela decided to make her Blurb book.
“I wanted to remember all the characters I’d made; I needed an archive, not just a pile of photographs,” says Angela. And while Angela does use her book as a record of her work, she’s also finding it’s a terrific way to show the range of her work to customers and potential wholesale clients.
“Market stalls have limited space and a book can show customers so much more,” she says. “Besides a professionally printed book makes a great compliment to my online marketing efforts like my website, Twitter, and Facebook.”
Check it out. The book was made with Blurb BookSmart®. It’s clean, colorful, and utterly charming. Angela plans to keep her book as a reference and update it as her work continues. “I love having a book of my work,” she says. “It’s something I can proudly show people when they ask ‘so…what do you do?’“
