Having recently acquired some nice big Johnson wood type, during 2013, I was inspired to put together a poster that was reminiscent of the 1930's - 1940's, so came up with this design incorporating a two-colour linocut of a loaf of bread.
Shortly after putting this new poster on my website, I was delighted to have been approached by the Home Baked project, who wanted to sell my posters in their new bakery. The project used a kickstarter campaign to resurrect Mitchells Bakery, a long-standing local landmark and family business in Anfield, Liverpool that eventually closed-up in 2010.
The bakery now has its own oven and as well as providing bread, Homebaked are planning to make pies, pizzas and cakes for match-day crowds, and even host their own bread making courses. This bakery is also an important development within the program to regenerate the Anfield area which was almost wiped-out by the government Pathfinder urban renewal scheme of the 1990s.
