Above: Wooden typefaces spelling out monthly themes for our next letterpress calendar – out soon and available via treats on our website.
Our 2013 Letterpress Calendar has the foods and beverages of the county “writ large” on every page. The Calendar, which is on the press as I write, will be linked to Tinsmiths’ Cuttings via monthly Blog postings. Each post will cover the calendar topic of the month – suggestions for recipes using locally produced seasonal food, Herefordshire walks, markets to visit, beers and ciders to sample. Truly the tastes of Herefordshire. The year starts with a refreshing detox – a favourite route for a walk on the Malvern Hills, with a trip to collect Spring Water along the way. Less abstemious suggestions follow from February onwards!
As has become customary (and a great delight) we are working with Tilley’s Letterpress to produce Tinsmiths’ Calendar locally. Having created our monthly themes, we are making a limited edition poster of our “Herefordshire Harvest” which will be available from our Artist Print shop. If you use Facebook, there will be an opportunity next month to win a Calendar and poster, “Like Us” on Facebook to hear more.
