Letterpress Archive Recipe Box and Recipe Cards

£35.00 £20.00

Letterpress archive box to store all of your favourite recipes. The perfect gift for those who love to cook and bake.

Inspired by the below stairs & kitchen garden storage containers and stationary used in large country houses which were always functional and simple, but often very beautiful.

The box is made from a sturdy 70% recycled card that has been handprinted and comes with four tabbed dividers and 24 blank recipe cards to keep a note of recipes from family and friends.

The box is typeset in Baskerville, a typeface designed by John Baskerville in Birmingham around 1750. The whole set has been handprinted on a restored Victorian treadle printing press, using linseed oil ink. 

The set includes an archive box, four tabbed dividers, 24 recipe cards & an information card on how the box was made.
