For more than thirty years I, Nicolas McDowall, together with my wife Frances, have been working with artists/printmakers to produce fine books, printed by hand in enviably idyllic surroundings. We have been proud to have been responsible for a substantial catalogue of books, copies of which are to be found in major libraries throughout the world.

Although many titles have long since sold out, copies of a significant number of books are still available and can be studied on this website and bought direct from us, the publishers.

Sadly, Frances died in October 2019 but our daughter, Cressida, has taken charge of how the Press works and we hope that you will find all the information you need on this website but please do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to enquire further.
