Greetings from Slightly Foxed. We’ve recently returned from an extraordinarily informative and rewarding trip to visit our printers, Smith Settle, in Yorkshire, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. You can see a little of the printing and bookbinding process behind the scenes at Smith Settle in video form on the Slightly Foxed website thanks to Glen Milner and the Daily Telegraph.
While on our bookish adventure, we were able to explore the nearby town of Ilkley and, of course, made our way to The Grove Bookshop, a charming little place full to bursting with brilliant and beautiful books. We managed to track down a couple of copies of the recently published summer issue of Slightly Foxed on the ground floor before making our way downstairs to browse their treasure trove of travel books and specialized music section. Amongst the selection we discovered a new edition of Giles Smith’s Lost in Music and remembered Donald Winchester’s particularly cheering article in Slightly Foxed Issue No. 24 which we thought was perfect to share with you this week.
Please read on for an extract from Donald’s piece on Lost in Music and a link to read the article in full for free on our website. We do hope you’ll enjoy it.
With best wishes, as ever, from the SF office staff
