My Creative Life is a gorgeous coffee table book I designed for the lovely and super talented textile artist, Michelle Mischkulnig.

We’re both very delighted to see the results of our hard work in print, the story flows beautifully throughout, and the images are so colourful. Michelle provided me with all her text and images.

After carefully reading her beautiful words and looking at all the textile art, I knew how I wanted to tell her story to her readers. Creating negative space around the images gives them the breathing space they deserve, and making some of them run off the page creates the illusion that the fabric continues beyond. Also keeping in mind the target audience of the book when choosing the size and type of font.

In Michelle’s words: ‘Thank you Mandy for understanding who I am and how I wanted people to see me’.
