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!

Zothique Prism




I'm nearing completion of a very limited and beautiful chapbook for one of Clark Ashton Smith's stories from Zothique, the Earth of the Dying Sun.  The edition will feature a new illustration rendered by Robert H. Knox, well known for his Necromonicon Press artwork.

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.

The Weight of Time

I visited Ars Obscura and Joel Radcliffe, master bookbinder to take a look at the binding progress for the limited edition Men of Baldfolk and Other Fanciful Tales by Lord Dunsany.  The book looks terrific and Joel does superb, meticulous work.  The books are now under weight and will cure until August 15th and then officially be published and begin shipping.  The special pre-order price will end on the 15th so please visit the website for purchase information.https://www.peganapress.com/the-men-of-baldfolk.html

Of Silk and the Hammer

We've been making some slight changes to the binding for The Men of Baldfolk and Other Fanciful Tales. The black cotton cloth we were using on the test dummy for the quarter bound spine really picks up dirt and shows the scoring of the bone folder so we've gone to a beautiful black, shimmering silk moire material that really looks great I've also added more information about the contents for the book and posted an audio excerpt from one of the unpublished stories.  Work progresses on the new Lovecraft edition; I'm in receipt of some beautiful color illustrations from our artist.  I will share his name and some images soon.  We invite you to visit the page and look and listen.
