TODAY’S restless churchgoers might be amused by a copy of The Hotspur, the parish magazine of St John’s in the north Pennine village of Healey. Get a free concrete poem along with your church service times. Jamie Warde-Aldham maintains a proud Northumbrian tradition of textual embellishment as he creates a fresh — and decidedly eccentric — new format for the sort of leaflet that flops monthly on to village doormats.
