Barbarian Press books on display

The Abbotsford library is displaying two books from the Barbarian Press collection.  A feast for the eyes, and food for the soul, Barbarian Press books are excellent examples of hand printed books, demonstrating exceptional printing and artistic value.  UFV Library is fortunate to have the entire catalogue of Barbarian titles in its collection.  All titles are catalogued and available to use in the library.

Established in 1977 in Kent, England, Jan and Crispin Elsted set up their presses in Mission, BC in 1978 where they have continued their masterful work printing books on English translations of poetry to bibliography, illustrated classics and books on wood engraving.

Listen to Crispin Elsted discuss private presses, and specifically William Morris' Kelmscott Press , with UFV's Graphic Design students in 2013.

To learn more about the Barbarian Press, click here to access their website.

This display will be available until the end of April.
