Personalise it...

Many special keepsake memory books are stored out in a safe place but are often forgotten about...

You can now personalise one of our crinkly cloth newspapers. The perfect memory book gift for a baby's first year. It's light, washable and easy for babies to hold and they can engage and familiarise themselves with the photos of themselves and family members. A washable, tactile book.

It can also be used to provide some reassurance for toddlers starting nursery and be enjoyed by everyone.

Simply select 15 of your favourite photos and details and email them to us along with your payment. Allow 3-4 weeks for production, especially at busier times like Christmas.


A bit about us...

We are Jo and Nic, two friends who met working in a children's books publisher in Bath. Now, both self-employed working mums have built a business from scratch. Since our launch into retail in February 2018 we have created, illustrated, designed, and written over 60 titles in the range. In August 2022 we collaborated with Dynamic Distribution which distributes the crinkly newspapers to independent stockists in the UK and worldwide. Between all this, we have our busy family lives with daily routines. We love what we do and many of our customers and stockists are doing the same which is why we all support each other as independent businesses.


I'm Jo Joof. I grew up in
Sunbury on Thames and now live in Frome.
I'm a self-taught illustrator and designer with many years of experience in children's book publishing. 
I do the roughs and text for our titles and I have great fun thinking up the rhymes! Being a mother of five artistic girls aged between 10-22, I'm never short of a bit of inspiration and help with photography and social media skills.
