I've been a member for a year and have enjoyed the FPBA's bi-yearly journal Parenthesis. Much info about fine presses and their works and links to their sites.
Recently I received an e-mail from them which led me to their blog site
and scrolling thru I saw a great offer for a book called George Bernard Shaw- 8 Interviews, a collection of essays written by Hayden Church about some of his talks with GBH. I now have my copy and it is funny and beautifully made at the Perpetua Press by Dean Bornstein, who is selling the book for $10. I hope others may enjoy the volume, contact info on the blog.
Hope you like it, the website provides access to many fine small presses, and there are back issues of Parenthesis with lists of contents available too.
Have you received the latest Parenthesis yet? no sign of mine, don't know if I should start worrying.
overthemoon I received mine about 3 weeks ago. I am in New York.
You might want to contact them.
>6 I renewed in late September and received the regular copy about 3 weeks later. I still await the de luxe edition, slipcased with a hardbound copy of the regular edition and a folder of ephemera. I contacted FPBA today and hope for an answer soon.
I've heard from the FPBA that the de luxe editions are completed and ready to be shipped, mine should arrive in a coupla weeks from the UK.
Just passing along the Youtube presentation of the Barbarian Press' Plays of Pericles. Too bad this is way out of my price range
So much for thinking Pericles an odd choice for a limited edition. They had pre-sold all but six before CODEX and must have sold the last ones there. It's an amazing book and it was very gratifying to see it in person after being in the "pipeline" for so long. Simon Brett's illustrations are gorgeous and the layout is beautiful.
I guess one never knows in the fine press world. I was talking to the Sherwin Press about their beautiful two volume Innocents Abroad and they feel they miscalculated the appeal of limited editions of Twain. They said Twain collectors seem more interested in ephemera than new editions of the work. The book was very cool with an open, non-adhesive spine. I would love to have it if I had $1200 laying around.
>9 Thanks for posting, great to see such a full presentation of the book, wish I had the bucks...went to the Barbarian home and read about becoming a subscriber and the discount- and I've considered similar subscriptions from Bird and Bull and other fine presses-but the outlay would take a huge bite outta my other book buying-unless I get a second job to pay for more books, yeah, that's it!
