Singing The Cut - Canal Songs & Ramblings

Regular price £5.00 Sale

In 2016, Jennifer Reid and Simon Woolham walked along the entire towpath of the 127 mile canal from Leeds to Liverpool.

During this journey they literally 'sang for their supper'.

This book is a beautifully put together collection of poems and songs that were either written of performed along the way.

Hand-printed, bound and published by Incline Press. Display face printed in Wide Latin from the defunct type-face foundry of Stephenson Blake, Sheffield. The lines are in Pilgrim, design by Eric Gill and cast in typemetal by Andy Elrod.

The illustrations are by Chichi Parish, a London based artist and illustrator. She produced woodcuts especially for this book.

Limited to 'about' three hundred copies, printed and sewn by hand. August 2017.
