The idea has been brewing for a while, maybe a liftime. I love books and I love making things so I was probably always eventually going to want to make books. (I did make little books all the time when I was young but there was never more than one copy of each and they were usually abandoned before they were finished.)
So I have set up Yarnstorm Press. I chose the name because I am still very attached to 'yarnstorm', the word I coined for the blog in 2005 and which is still in the URL. I don't have grand plans, but I do have plans. The first is to republish The Gentle Art of Domesticity as an e-book and this will be happening very soon. And then I'll press ahead with a printed project. Although I've written books, I've never made a book, but I know I'm going to enjoy it.

I wanted Baskerville because it's an absolute classic, is very highly regarded by serious typeface fans (as I discovered when researching it - there's also an interesting section on it in Just My Type), and because it has a wonderful 'y'.]
