Sibella Court is an internationally recognised interior stylist and product designer based in Sydney, Australia. She also runs a boutique haberdashery called The Society Inc, an amazing treasure trove of oddities and curiosities.
‘Etcetera – Creating Beautiful Interiors With the Things you Love’ is the first of three books we have designed for Sibella. A very hands-on project which incorporates a range of beautiful interiors and details with a large collection of paper, card and fabric to form a richly layered collage throughout. A hand stamped alphabet from an antique printing set added a very individual element to the design. ‘Etcetera’ also needed to be a tactile product and an extension of Sibella’s own style. We decided on using a combination of different internal stocks and incorporated screen printed grey board for the case cover with an embossed brown paper jacket to give the finished book texture. Many of these pages were collaged by hand to add a realistic sense of depth. A welcome change from a strictly digital approach and a chance to create something very unique.
