The way our printers work and how they conduct their business is important to us. Our Yorkshire printersSmith Settle, have been with us from the beginning and are true friends of Slightly Foxed. Founded in 1981, they are among the now rare breed of craftsmen printers, producing beautiful leather-bound hand-sewn books for the likes of the Folio Society. It’s to them that we owe the consistently high standard of printing and elegant appearance of Slightly Foxed and of our books and the quarterly.

    Fascinating. I’ve watched it three times in a row already. More of the same, please.

      Thank you for watching. Yes, it’s beautiful and compelling and I never tire of it. Our printers, Smith Settle, are very special indeed, and we so appreciate that each and every one of our books is produced this way.
      Best wishes, Anna
