The Fifth Decade!
In 2017 the Press celebrated its fortieth anniversary. Ursus typographicus, just completed, marks that celebration. But if anniversaries mean anything, they mean that life – and work – must go on, and so as we move toward the fiftieth anniversary of Barbarian Press we have many plans and much work to do.
Bordering on the Sublime is at last under way, with a planned 18-month production schedule, and we have Endgrain Editions 5 in the press. Ahead of us are more books – books on typography, a major edition of a literary classic, new translations, more poetry from the canon (most of these illustrated by leading engravers), and of course books on wood engraving and engravers. We thank all of you who have supported us through all or some of these years, and welcome you and others to join us in the fifth decade of Barbarian Press as we continue to celebrate the usefulness and the beauty of the Book.
