Creature Couture book!

Felt Mistress: Creature Couture from Blank Slate on Vimeo.

I'm a little late blogging this as it was officially announced last week but I'm very excited about the release of an "art of" Felt Mistress book through the lovely people at Blank Slate. Designed and edited by the brilliant Woodrow Phoenix it's a 400 page hardback book with over 1500 photographs, character information, original sketches by Jonathan and interviews with the artists I've been lucky enough to collaborate with - including Jon Burgerman, Pete Fowler, Ben Newman, Jon Knox and Nobrow. The book will debut at Thought Bubble in Leeds on November 17th followed by a launch party in London in December (details soon). Pre-orders are available now and until August 1st it's at a special price of £26.99 (normally £29.99).

The exciting news doesn't end there for as well as the book I'm excited to announce that the brilliant Crazylabel have also produced a limited Blank Slate exclusive edition vinyl toy of the one and only Tippy Winkles. Limited to just 250 this is available as a special edition bundle along with the book. All preorders of either option have the chance to win the "Felt Ticket". This will be inserted randomly inside one copy of the book and the winner of this wins none other than Elspeth Frond - cover star of the book!
