About this title
The book consists of a detailed history of the Press and a full bibliography of its publications and ephemera, tracing the venture from its origins in Sydney, Australia, in the early 1920s, to success in London from 1926, and its final dissolution in 1930. The Press was notable for the literary input of its proprietor Jack Lindsay, working initially with John Kirtley, later with P. R. Stephensen, and finally alone. For the illustrations, it published work by Jack's father, Norman Lindsay, as well as by Edward Bawden, Hal Collins, Lionel Ellis, and others. Jack Lindsay was responsible for the typographical design initially with Kirtley that brought a distinctive style to the books of the Press. This book has been designed by Paul W. Nash, printed by Henry Ling, and bound in blue cloth with a design inspired by a Fanfrolico publication. There are 96 illustrations, including reduced facsimiles of the title pages of the forty-six books published by the Press. Available in the UK from the Private Libraries Association and in Australia from Kay Craddock. 328 pages. hardcover. 7.25 x 10.75 in..
