The Tan Hill Inn dates back to the 17th century and is known far and wide as the highest public house in Great Britain. Sitting on its own at the top of a hill in Swaledale, Tan Hill oozes period charm with its exposed beams, stone floor and welcoming fire. It much loved by cyclists, walkers and travellers who prefer something off the beaten track.
As loud and proud Yorkshire folk, we were pleased as punch when we were asked to design a book about the history of the Tan Hill Inn, showing off some of the best our county has to offer!
The brief was simple and straight to the point… let the images tell the story. We combined beautiful photographs with simple typography and a layout that gives a sense of space.
THE ELBOW GREASE
To do exactly that we:
- met with the author to understand the goals of the project and to make suggestions for format and production
- edited down a large collection of images from various sources and of varying quality (our Jonny even provided one of his photographs for page 31!)
- made any necessary corrections to image colour/quality, ensuring the final output was the highest quality possible
- provided design concepts which were then developed into the final product
A beautiful (if we do say so ourselves) book that hit the shelves before Christmas.
There has been very positive feedback from fans of the pub, with orders flying in as soon as the book was published.
THE KIND WORDS
“Thynne Creative took our concept and delivered – on time and on budget – a beautiful piece of work.”
