Finally — in the second half of 2019 — the end of the long, long road to the release of our book* hoves into view and it’s now only about 7 weeks away.
A limited edition, hand-printed, Letterpress delight, will soon be available to buy from us. And in “The Chinese Year Of The Pig” as well. How about that for serendipitous timing?
*[ Less a book, more a portfolio of 10 perfectly printed pigs with hand set Letterpress texts impressed into fine Zerkall paper.]
Along with this masterpiece we’ll also make available a little notebook of recipes that perfectly complement these lovely old rare breeds.
In a bid to whet your buying appetite, here’s some shots of the book printing work in progress and the involved process that needed to be followed. I should emphasise — here and now and henceforth — that 98% of the necessary hard work was undertaken by Val Littlewood. I did the words. That’s about all; without her skills in linocutting, design (and InDesign), layout and printing, this book would never have happened.
