The Fifth Decade continues...
2021 at Barbarian Press is proving an exciting and productive year. Even though we have missed seeing friends and student groups, or showing interested visitors over the press, the continuing lack of visitors due to the Covid pandemic has of course resulted in fewer distractions, and more production. Sudden Immobility: Selected Poems of Molly Holden is now at the binder, and copies will be sent out through the fall. A few copies remain, for those who have not yet taken the plunge.
Work on Bordering on the Sublime continues, although we have had to move the estimated publication date to early 2023. The book is a joy to work on, but it is a detailed, challenging project, and time-consuming. Pictures of the first pages may be seen in our Press News section.
Meanwhile Apollonia Felicity is working on a recent smaller project: Ten Poems with One Title, a new sequence of poems by Robert Bringhurst, will be accompanied by five engravings by Richard Wagener. We expect to publish it early in 2022. And so work goes happily on . . .
