This was supposed to be a Summer issue, but we were slow and it’s now almost September so our Fall issue of Bibliographica features two articles: Larry Thompson of Greyweathers Press writes about the process of creating his first two books; and Mark Attwood of The Artists’ Press celebrates fifteen years of printing. Here’s the link: http://dlist.sir.arizona.edu/2013/; we hope you will enjoy reading this issue as much as we have.
I’m still hoping to put out another issue this year, probably in November or December, so if you’d like to share something with our readers, please drop me a line (firstname.lastname@example.org).

The Spring 2007 issue of Bibliographica is out and is devoted to fine printing in Canada. We have articles by Grant Wilkins on CBBAG, Richard Coxford discusses the Cheshire Cat Press, Andrea Taylor introduces her own Cotton Socks Press, and Eric Swanick, Head of Simon Fraser’s Special Collections, gives an overview of the collections there with particular attention paid to their Jim Rimmer holdings.
There will be a Summer issue this year – I would be especially interested in getting someone who was at the CODEX Symposium in Feb. to write about it for that issue.

The sixth issue (Winter 2006) of Bibliographica is finally done and ready for downloading:
This issue features: Robert Walp of Chester Creek Press describing why (and how) he got into printing; Grant Wilkins giving an overview of the Ottawa Book Arts Fair 2006 (thanks Grant!); and Skye Hardesty offers an appreciation of the work of Tom Killion.
You will likely notice that this issue is not as well designed as some of the previous ones. This is because Kira’s computer died and so I had to design it on my computer at work. Alas, I lack the skills that Kira has, but I assure you that this issue is only an anomaly and everything will be back to normal for the Spring issue.

We’ve been unpacking more boxes and finding odd bits of things (cat toys, a can of WD-40, tennis balls, some Bulmer type); we also found a box within a box that contained a number of printed copies of Bibliographica 3 (Cedar Creek Press, a review of a Fox Run Press production, and a long essay on Ricky Jay and Patrick Reagh). These were sent out with something that Kira had printed during her stay with Graham & Kathy of Incline Press. So, if there’s anyone out there who would like a copy with ephemera inserted, please e-mail me. There are about 15-20, so first come, first served until they run out. I’d like to trade them for printed ephemera (or maybe interesting stamps/paper money), if possible.

It’s finally done and a few months late. This 5th issue features Dean Bornstein and his Perpetua Press as well as a review of a recent work by Regula Russelle.

I’ve also e-mailed this to most everyone on our subscriber list – if you’d like to receive an email when the next issue comes out, contact me at aeoluspress [at] yahoo [dot] com.
For those of you reading who are not on the mailing list, I will briefly note that we’re changing to a twice-a-year publication schedule because the editorial board is too overloaded with stuff at the moment. If you would like to get involved in the production of Bibliographica (and maybe return to the quarterly heydays of last year), let me know; if you would like to write something for a future issue of Bibliographica (a review, an essay, or would like to introduce yourself and your press to our readers), please contact me. I, for one, would be very grateful.

All of the first four issues of Bibliographica are now available online:
1 (Winter 2005)
2 (Spring 2005)
3 (Summer 2005)
4 (Fall 2005)
The editors would like to thank Anita Coleman for helping with our transition to a digital format.

It went out a week or so ago, but I’ve been holding off blogging about Issue 4. This year’s issues will all be published electronically (which will help us get issues out in a more timely fashion), but we’re also archiving past issues online at DLIST, a repository for library & information science materials. So Issue 4 is now also available online at http://dlist.sir.arizona.edu/1036/. This issue features a piece by Sarah Vickers about the social aspect of the private press world, reviews of books by Caveworks Press and Press on Scroll Road, and fine press news.
