Productions Notes: June 22, 2018

Class Clown by Pino Collucio won the Trilliam last night! No wonder the judges were drawn to this book with such a lovely cover that pairs so well with Pino’s witty poetry, designed by our own Ellie Hastings. I have also been working on typesetting K.D. Miller’s Late Breaking. What is most important when I typeset […]

Read With Your Friends!

It’s true that the best thing about reading is that it keeps you from having to talk to people. HOWEVER: if you’re going to talk to people, books make a fine topic—and three of our recent titles are making waves as summer book-club picks. Get it? Waves? Because it’s SUMMER? I’ll show myself out. First […]

Production Notes: June 15, 2018

It is always both exciting and terrifying when boxes arrive from the printer. Opening a box always begins with an apprehensive inspection for errors—from the printer, from us, from the shipper—which is normally followed by a sigh of relief and finally the excitement at just how good the final product looks. Such was the case […]

IN THE MEDIA: Cooper & Huebert + Ondjaki & Pheby

It’s mid-June, which means the Bibliomanse is abuzz from production all the way to publicity.

Production Notes: June 1, 2018

Original Prin cover has landed.  Personally I have to say this one has exceeded my expectations. Michel Vrana really knocked it out of the park. Send along your thoughts in the comments. Robert Earl Stewart has sent in the final manuscript for The Running-Shaped Hole. I’ve started typesetting it for Advance Reading Copies. Sometimes when I am typesetting a […]

IN THE MEDIA: Not-so-Transparent City

Ondjaki’s Transparent City (trans. Stephen Henighan) hit shelves in Canada and the US last week and reviewers are raving. Named a Vanity Fair Hot Type Book in April, May has brought a beautiful bouquet comprised of Times Literary Supplement, Toronto Star, and Globe and Mail blooms. In a review for TLS, reviewer Alev Adil called […]

New Office and New Arrivals

New office who dis big pile of boxes A major perk of our new digs: we now have room to receive shipments of books right here in the place where we make, mail, and shout about them. This is a major upgrade to our previous system, which I fondly call “driving furiously to a storage […]
