The studio & workshop has developed since 2015 when product designer & founder Seán O Sullivan wrote & illustrated his first book Other Seas. Like a tree falling in the woods and no one being around to hear, Seán realised that production & distribution of stories was equally as important as the writing & illustration so he started to make some books, badly at first.  

Many badly made books later this attitude of experimentation is still alive and well. We make books and paper products of all shapes, sorts and sizes, having learned that our one core product is infinitely variable and only limited by imagination.
