Urban Cottage Industries

Some of you may remember an article that appeared on Metal Type last year called David Evans, A New Era, 2011. It took a look at David Evans' move from Halifax, West Yorkshire, UK to new premises in Mytholmroyd, four miles up the road.

David, and new partner Stanley Wilson, have even managed to add to their collection of letterpress equipment since the move. I visited the new premises again in June 2012.

Visit the Urban Cottage Industries website at: http://urbancottageindustries.co.uk/ – They sell brilliant Historic Lighting, and do some clever things with letterpress.

The Urban Cottage Industries photographs are spread over three pages: Page One, Page Two, Page Three.
