What's New at Pegana Press?


We've been keeping busy at Pegana Press.  Mike has been hard at work setting and printing the next release,  and we will talk about that in another post.  It is more than half finished.

We put in an order for letterpress type about 6 weeks ago to replace our type which is showing signs of wear.  As it turned out, there wasn't enough to fill the order, and so now we're still looking.

Sunday, we spent the day making our most popular letterpress holiday card.  It's always a festive event for us, working together to make these fun cards.

Rita is between book binding jobs and is getting ready for a tabling event at the local gallery here in town.  She will feature her short story zines Hearth & Heart, our letterpress chapbook of her stories--Winter Tales, and our letterpress holiday cards.



If you're in the States and are celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday, we wish you a very joyful holiday celebration this week end.  And we wish to say how thankful we are for your support of Pegana Press.

Inking the Press


Here's what Mike is up to this morning at Pegana Press.  Printing Page 1 of the current book, we thought we'd share some of the process with you.  As these rollers turn, they evenly distribute ink to the press.

Death Does Not Take A Holiday




I spent the last week folding, scoring, trimming and gathering  sheets for our latest release, Nehwon Vision by Fritz Leiber, with new artwork.  It's a tremendous story from Leiber, a timeless tale of Death, Fafhrd, and the Gray Mouser played out in 20 heartbeats. Well worth checking out.  More information and how to order can be found here.

The new audiobook , The Vengeance of Thor  should be available to download and purchase sometime in the next month.  A truly immersive rendering of rare stories by Lord Dunsany.

Next up a new Dunsany release!

The chapbook is being letterpress printed on snowy white watermarked German Fine Edition paper and will be hand sewn into blue gray French heavy covers with ornate titling.

Zothique Prism is available to pre-order and will begin shipping in about a month.  Here's a link to the website page with more information.

The Book of Dreams

Took a trip to the Seattle Antiquarian Book Fair over the weekend and had a great time showing off this display prospectus for the new Deluxe Lovecraft edition Dark Dreamlands.  Dealers in the supernatural and fantastic were especially excited about Michael Hutter's illustrations.  We'll be doing a test binding in the coming weeks and will post some images as the book takes shape.  More information and how to advance order this deluxe and very limited edition of Dark Dreamlands by H.P. Lovecraft can be found here on our website.
