Although I’ve been making sandals for over 10 years now, I’ve learned so many new things while making the projects for the book, researching everything from scratch as if I was a beginner.

They say the best way to get familiar with a subject is to write a book about it, this is so true. It certainly has taken my sandalmaking to a new level.

But it’s not only the content of the book that has challenged me to go new ways, it’s also the technical side about self-publishing an e-Book that opened a new world to me, I’m so fascinated by it all.

In the process of writing the book, I’ve taught myself product photography, in design and setting up a blog and landing page. Of course, there is no end to learning, something new to master always comes up.

Update
