Conceived and written by award-winning gardener and food writer Lia Leendertz 'The Almanac' is reviving the tradition of the rural almanac, connecting you with the months and seasons of the year via moon-gazing, foraging, feast days, seasonal eating, meteor-spotting, tides, produce, traditional music and gardening. Creatively conceived as well to celebrate illustration, each year we collaborate with a new artist. The first 2018 edition was beautifully illustrated by Emma Dibben who’s lovely loose watercolur style set a perfect benchmark. 2019 celebrates the craft of lino cutting through the work of the Celia Hart and the 2020 edition by artist and printmaker Julia McKenzie.

"An absolute beauty of a book." (Cerys Matthews, BBC 6 Music)
