Pearl Lowe’s Vintage Craft Launch

Posted by Abbey on May 9, 2013

On Wednesday 8th May we had the press launch for Pearl Lowe's Vintage Craft at Soho House.

And it was epic.

This book was far and away the biggest project I have worked on since I left my "proper" job in 2007.

This book was like my baby.

For 15 months I worked closely with Pearl {we have worked together since 2008 when I designed her wedding stationery} and Harper Collins developing the book from our original coffee table interiors book proposal to the beautiful craft/ interiors book that you see now {only our original chapter headings remain the same!}.

I worked {with my fabulous team of Helen {on design and illustration}, Mum {on craft and creative and sewing projects} and various expert helpers - lots more to come on those} as Pearl's craft and creative direction on each of the craft projects {there were a whopping 75 created during the process}.

We had sleepless nights, early mornings and late nights developing the craft concepts and making each tutorial followed by the design and illustrative elements... I worked with the most amazing craft editor to pour all of my thoughts and ramblings into the beautiful recipe style layout and what the whole team of {countless amazing people} created is possibly one of the most beautiful books I have ever read.

Pearl's absolutely amazing eye for fashion and interior style, her creative direction and attention to detail combined with her infectious whimsical approach is what sets this book apart from the other craft books on the market.

I am so proud of both working on this book and working with Pearl.

So Wednesday nights will now never be the same again.
