Hello, my name is Sarah Howerd (Twitter handle: MsPolyethylene) and this is my blog.
Previously, in this life, I’ve been a graphic designer specialising in illustrated non-fiction for the international market. This type of book design is often referred to as integrated book design as it involves layouts combining text and images, either photography or illustration. If you’d like to see what I did (it might not be there much longer because of a cost-cutting exercise!) then please take a look at my website: www.sideways14.co.uk
I currently work for the library service in the UK, a job which is both varied and fulfilling. I love meeting customers, recommending books, singing with small children and their parents at Rhymetime, working with my colleagues, and generally working in a place full of loads of books!
My blog subjects are likely to be a bit eclectic, I write about whatever is going on in my head and hope it might be of interest to others as well. As I’m pretty busy my blog is likely to be no more than one or two posts a month if I’m lucky. I also have relapsing-remitting MS so some of my time is taken up with related activities such as resting to regain a smudge of energy which can be a bit boring but – hey, it could be worse…
If you like what I write and/or my photographs it would be great if you could tell me what it was you liked in the comments then perhaps I can add similar content. Thank you for reading.
