Thee Hellbox Press to Publish Limited Edition Collection by Phil Hall

Share |
From X, by Phil Hall

Book artist Hugh Barclay has been working on a new limited-edition publication in collaboration with Governor General's Award-winning poet Phil Hall and Kingston-based artist Michèle LaRose. X: A Poem Sequence in 16 Parts is letterpress printed with hand-set type and stitch bound. Phil Hall's poetry is complemented by abstract soft-block prints by Michèle LaRose, inspired by the poetry.

Any book printed by Thee Hellbox Press is a work of art in itself, the product of many months of dedicated work. Of the roughly 20,000 books published in Canada each year, less than 20 are printed letterpress, with even fewer of those holding such extensive and intricate artwork as is found in X. Copies can be ordered for $40 each (shipping included) by contacting Hugh at [email protected]. To find out more about Thee Hellbox Press please visit the website.

Hugh Barclay will be at the Fisher Small Press Fair in Toronto on Saturday, September 7, with copies of Phil Hall's X ready for show. For details, visit Open Book: Toronto's Events page.
