'The Young Tamlane' is an old Scottish ballad concerning the rescue and disenchantment of a childhood lover from the fairy Queen. It is a letterpress printed limited edition of 50 hand typeset in Monotype Centaur, with a 4 colour reduction lino print on the title page, and hand bound all by myself.

– 20 pages
– 246mm x 150mm
– Printed on 175gsm Somerset Book

I first heard this ballad on the 1969 album, Liege and Lief by Fairport convention. Their version is called Tamlin and is more Anglicised. To avoid copyright issues I went back to the 1857 edition of English and Scottish Ballads edited by Francis James Child.

Beautifully printed, thanks Phil, your print skills are awesome, and the binding isn't bad either ;) I can't read it without the song playing in my head though...

A beautiful book. The level of craftsmanship is fantastic! Yes, a gushing review from a happy customer! I enjoyed reading out loud with what was no doubt an appalling Scottish accent.
