Cover of The Vampire and the Seventh Daughter

On Saturday, April 26, Greyweathers Press launched its latest letterpress work, an original short story by Larry Thompson titled The Vampire and the Seventh Daughter. This gothic trifle is hand printed with cold type, using our house font, Italian Oldstyle, for the text and the blackface type, Goudy Text, for the cover, title page and opening lines of the story. It is illustrated with five linoleum cut illustrations, and it has been printed in a limited edition of 75 on Arches Text Wove paper from France, with black Mohawk Ultrafine for covers. Cover label hand painted by Holly Dean. Every book is protected from vampires by a tiny cross bound into the front cover.

The Vampire and the Seventh Daughter is pamphlet bound, 8 pages long, 12″ tall x 6.5″ wide. $60 per copy plus GST in Canada and shipping. To purchase email Larry Thompson at studio@greyweathers.com or call (613) 269-3714.


Greyweathers Press Blog

January 13, 2008

Larry Thompson of Greyweathers Press has started a blog: http://greyweathers.wordpress.com. As readers of Bibliographica may recall, Larry is an excellent writer, so his blog is a particularly welcome addition to the fine press blogosphere.

Bibliographica 8

August 31, 2007

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 (aeoluspress@yahoo.com).


Greyweathers Press: New Book and Book Launch (Ottawa)

July 11, 2007

I guess today is my day to steal info from other blogs – here’s an announcement from Bytown Bookshop:

Our friends Larry and Holly and their Greyweathers Press are proud to announce the completion of their second letterpress book, TENEBRISMO, featuring ten poems by Kera Willis.

The limited edition (75 copies) poetry book will come in two variant bindings, a regular edition bound in black Mayfair cover paper printed in black ($75+gst) and a deluxe edition in full black leather with black foil stamped cover. ($155 +gst).

The book launched will take place here at the Bytown Bookshop 21 Arlington Ave. [Ottawa, Canada] on Saturday, July 14th at 6:00pm. There will be plenty of food, fun and of course the chance to dip yourself into the world of letterpress and fine books. I have given Larry the use of my press for the evening, so there may be the odd demonstration or crash course taking place as well. Hope to see everyone here on Saturday.
