  • A new documentary is being produced about pipes and pipe smoking.  The producers have a nice website that has all the details.

    From the website:

    "Father the Flame will be a feature-length documentary about slowing down, embracing life, and learning something in the process. It's also about tobacco pipes.

    We will delve into the modern world of the pipe culture, explore the historical journey of the tobacco pipe and show the making of a pipe from harvesting briar in Italy to a finished pipe made by a craftsman in a remote corner of upper Michigan. Through interviews, narration, and cinematic imagery we will explore the timeless and transcendant nature of pipes."

    It is a neat little A5 glossy full colour publication that has loads of information about pipes, pipe history, pipe manufacture, and pipe tobacco.  Members of the AITS are also listed at the back.  It is exceptional value at £1-00.  Maclean at G T Coventry in Kirkcaldy very kindly provided the KPC a sample to review, and a full review of the booklet will appear in the May edition of our newsletter 'Briar & Bothies'.
