Craft Book Design

Working with her mother, textile artist Prudence Mapstone, Dimity has undertaken the photography and design of five craft books on knitting & crochet techniques: Freeform: serendipitous design techniques for knitting & crochet (volumes 1 & 2), Never too many Handbags, Bullions & Beyond and Coat of Many Scrumbles. Over 10,000 copies of the books have been sold internationally.

The intricate knitting & crochet work in the publications requires a lot of macro photography and studio lighting to show the required detail.

The publication design has focused on full page high resolution images to show technique and to provide inspiration for the readers.
