Fleece, Old Stile Presses Receive Design Awards

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

The British Book Design and Production Awards, rife with awards to big names in publishing like Thames and Hudson and Phaidon, also has two of FPBA’s press members as winners:

sensuous_linesSensuous Lines, “A Catalogue Raisonne of the intaglio prints of John Buckland Wright,” won the “Best British Book” category for Fleece Press. The images were assembled by Christopher Buckland Wright, the artist’s son, who gathered together surviving copper plates left in the artist’s studio at the time of his death. Not surprisingly, the most deluxe edition of the book is already sold out.

New from Fleece Press

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2005

An e-mail from Oak Knoll has alerted me to the publication of a new book from Fleece Press; I’ve added info from the Fleece Press website below:

Due for publication in July 2005 is the highly important new biography of Edward Bawden by Malcolm Yorke, the first since Douglas Percy Bliss’ Pendomer Press book in 1979. The Inward Laugh, Edward Bawden and his circle has been printed by J.W.Northend Fine Print in Sheffield, and runs to 292 pages, very heavily illustrated in colour on almost every page. There are 750 copies (650 for sale), of which 100 copies are accompanied by loose 1930s copper engravings of four pottery transfer designs, housed in a slipcase (fully subscribed), and the rest are bound in quarter cloth and a Bawden patterned paper. Standard copies will be £262 on publication, and it is expected the book will shortly be out of print. A separate prospectus is available on application.

If you wish to contact the proprietor of Fleece Press directly to inquire or purchase, you may write Simon Lawrence, The Fleece Press, 95 Denby Lane, Upper Denby, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, HD8 8TZ, U.K.; or e-mail Mr. Lawrence at
