About Teacup press
I’m Mavina and I run the Teacup Press from my studio in Oxfordshire.
I’m an artist printmaker and I started making books because I wanted to encapsulate and present ideas that are too big to convey as a single print.
I love telling a story and feel excited and privileged that the books I make are shared and enjoyed by bookworms everywhere.
As an artist ideas are paramount, but I believe craftsmanship is an important element of printmaking too, and hand-printing allows me to make each piece individual. It's a slow process, hand-printing and hand-binding, which involves a lot of thinking and proofing and innumerable cups of coffee.
My hand-made books and prints are inspired by wildlife and the passing of the seasons that surrounds me here in the Oxfordshire countryside and also the tidal marsh-lands of the Essex coast on Mersea Island.
