We’re thrilled to be able to show off these beautiful letterpress prints that we’ve produced to celebrate the publication this month of Neil Tennant’s collection of lyrics One Hundred Lyrics and a Poem. Not only did Neil select the lyrics for the print (taken from the chorus of ‘Left to My Own Devices’) but he also spent time at the letterpress printer himself.


These exclusive letterpress prints are only available from selected bookshops as a complimentary addition when purchasing the hardback edition of One Hundred Lyrics and a Poem.
