The tale of Lady Ebdon Prints
I made my first print for a friends birthday in 2017; having worked as a Creative in various roles, initially in television, and then in Advertising, and often would make friends birthday cards and presents. She was the kind of person though that has EVERYTHING, so I wanted to make her something I knew she wouldn't already have, and make it truly unique and personal for her. After that, I made a few more for friends, and then I started to get orders from their friends, and Lady Ebdon Prints grew from there.
I just love the idea of using old and dusty books that have been loved but are no longer read, and turning them into a piece of artwork for people to really treasure.
I grew up in Norfolk, but now I live in leafy Ealing, London with my artist husband Alex (who is also a partner on NOTHS) and my 7 year old Mini-me project, Molly. Like plenty of other mums out there I really wanted to find a way of working that means I can be around at home mor to watch her grow up.
Working from home, and living the good life
I work from home, mostly at the kitchen table so can look out into my garden. All of my designs have a vintage feel, somehow they just fit better with the book pages that I print onto.
I love being able to tailor each print to really make it a thoughtful gift. I spend a long time trawling for suitable books in various book shops and online, some of them I have bought are just too old and precious to take apart… so I try and use them in my product photography instead. I treat each print I make as though it’s going up in my own home, so I take special care with choosing a page to print on that each person will hopefully love. I mount and frame all the prints myself by hand, and when it’s sunny I can take them outside to the garden and work there. Although that does mean that I have managed to spray one or two plants gold in the process...
Because I use Royal Mail to deliver my prints, they can take up to 4 working days from posting to delivery . If you need the print to arrive by a particular date, I would advice choosing the express delivery option, which allows prints to be sent out next working day and will require a signature upon delivery.
