I have been working on a little book for the Leeds International Book Fair (March 2nd/3rd). It has a Yorkshire theme and a wool theme and – as it is Valentine’s day – a love theme too!
I have always been fascinated and amused by some of the job titles in the textile industry. My favourite is the ‘greasy percher’.
This is a book about greasy perchers and other workers in the old Yorkshire woollen mills.
It’s called Life and Love in a Yorkshire Woollen Mill.
It is a Limited Edition hand made book and is illustrated with trace mono prints.
