I think there is something magical about a handmade book that can stir the senses and inspire the imagination.

Is it the anticipation that comes with the sight of the blank pages and the wonder at what stories and images they might come to hold?

Or perhaps a handmade book somehow gives us a tangible link to a slower pace of life and makes us pause, if even for the briefest of moments, to rest and reflect.

Whatever it is, there is something wonderful about physically holding a book and putting pen to paper that no computer device or digital screen can ever match.


But Little Deer Studio is about so much more than just beautiful handmade books.

It’s about giving you the space to take time out from our fast-paced, high-pressure, materialistic world, to slow down, to reflect, and just “be”.

Whether you want to express your creativity through art or writing, to remember the details of an amazing holiday, or to simply reflect on the events of the day, it’s about focussing on what’s important to you.  Following your true path. Creating your own story.
