Notes on the Name and Masthead.
It might have been The Boxwood Bugle. However there's no such thing! That notion however did lead to the image used as the basis for the masthead. Such cherubs or 'putti' were a feature of Renaissance and Baroque art and this particular little herald is carved in boxwood on a door in Dorset . The era, the medium and the woodwind in his mouth make him an ideal candidate as a mascot. A photo of the carving was manipulated to give the effect of a wood-cut, another principal product of the boxwood industries; see the work of Thomas Bewick to appreciate the wonders of boxwood as an engraving medium.

Just in case anyone feels like plumping for alternative names for the project Newsletter, there is a poll attached to this post. Feel free to comment and / or suggest other titles by replying to this post...
