Putting together our new 2013 Letterpress Calendar has been really good fun this year and very good for us too. Each calendar month links to our Blog. Go to the latest blog post to find an activity, walk, recipe or place to visit relevant to the month’s topic. So, for example, to prepare January’s outing, we took ourselves for a lovely Malvern Hills walk encompassing one of the many wells to collect some purifying spring water. Walking the route, whilst being great for our health, also means the blog we will give you accurate, up to date, directions – with reassuring mentions of obvious landmarks and a pdf to download and follow on your expedition. Perhaps less healthy will be our damson vodka recipe at the other end of the year – but, hey ho, we really ought to balance things.

Once again, and with more colour than ever, Martin Clark at Tilley’s, Ledbury has printed the calendar and Orphan’s press in  Leominster have bound it: thank you very much for a great job. The layout looked so good that artist and apprentice, Anneliese Appleby suggested a limited edition of (50) print-posters of the month headings (see below) and we’ve put these for sale in our Artist’s Print Shop.
