A Touch of Grass


Alan Kyle



Book Design

Alan Kyle's life in farming began at the Diamond, Fintona in County Tyrone. From here, in 1944, he moved with his parents to a 72 acre farm near Omagh. In due course, he took over the running of the farm from his father and with the support of his wife, Agnes.


From the age of 15, in a series of diaries, Alan recorded on a daily basis the trials, tribulations, rewards and highlights of more than 50 years in farming. In this book, using extracts from the diaries, Alan shares his experiences and views on the changing world of agriculture with a wider audience.


I worked Alan and Agnes Kyle on the design and artwork of their book "A Touch of Grass." It was a pleasure to work with the couple and to have been introduced to the various events throughout their life that have been included in this book.
