This slender 32-page paperback, with its newspaper-quality black-and-white photos and no-nonsense layout, provides an overview of this age-old craft. The book explains the techniques and traditions of the rustic orchardists of Britain and northwestern Europe. Not exactly a how-to book; it's more of a genteel discussion of a fine traditional rural handcraft. "Renaissance Magazine (August 2009)""
About the Author
Michael Quinion was the first Curator of the Museum of Cider at Hereford, Britain's specialist museum of orcharding and cidermaking. As well as supervising the development of the museum, he organised a broad programme of research into the history and technology of cidermaking, including conversations with over six hundred farm cidermakers past and present. Michael Quinion was previously a BBC radio producer and later ran a business creating audio-visual programmes for heritage sites. After leaving the Museum he co-founded a national consultancy in heritage development, Touchstone, for which he continues to work as a freelancer. His other main interests are lexicography and computer programming.
