Welcome Autumn and one of the most relaxing and wonderful time of the year in Engelberg. Nice hiking or biking temperature, golden leaves covering the ground and the distant sound of cow bells ringing from some Alp descent in the valley. Since we haven't been too spoiled with good weather this summer, its been extra nice with the lovely autumn days that September has offered. One day in particular was the 25th September when the annual Herbstmarkt took place. How lucky were we to have clear blue sky, warm temperatures and such a great turnout of happy market visitors. We even had some beautifully decorated cow descents through the village which was an extra bonus.
The Roastery | Papeterie of course had a stand infront of the shop as usual. This year we decided to display more Papeterie products and especially our own production of greeting cards and posters since they fit so well with the autumn and "Älpler" vibe of the day. We are extremely proud and honoured to be able to work with these nostalgic and local images we got our hands on and give them new life with a little help of our Heidelberg Letterpress. You'll find Birthday, Thank you, Congratulation and Good luck cards with nostalgic Engelberg images and printed on high quality paper and tastefully designed and embossed by Andrea.
A definite hit during the market day was for sure the posters and greeting cards of "Kari and Weysel". Several local Engelbergers came by and tried to identify the two bearded Älpler from two-three generations back. We got a good tip that their names were Kari (right) and Weysel (left) but are of course really interested in finding out the definite identities of these two handsome men. So if you have any leads, an old family album with a lookalike of one of these men pictured in it or just happen to know that this is your great grandpa or mothers great uncle.... give us a shout.
