17. Peterson : 150 Years of Irish Craftsmanship (The New Video)


Christmas Greetings All,

As promised — the world internet premiere of the new Peterson film! Really, really fun. Having been to the factory twice, I must say that the video gives me a better sense of the sequence of operations in the process of crafting a Peterson pipe than did my actual visits to the Sallynoggin factory.

Bold Move, the Dublin-based video company who made the film for K&P, obviously  worked closely with Conor and Tom Palmer, Tony Whelan Jr., David Blake, Joe Kenny and several others on the factory floor in creating Peterson’s 150th anniversary video. To view it full-screen, click on the gray box with the white arrow marked “pop out” at the upper right-hand corner of the video frame.

In book news, we’ve got a final title:  The Peterson Pipe : A History of Kapp & Peterson. Our first draft is within a few weeks of completion, after which we’ll turn our attention to editing and packaging illustrations and photographs for layout and design. We’re doing our best to see that you have the new book in hand this time next year. Thanks, as always, for all your support and encouragement.

A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
