The Holloway Press was established at the University of Auckland in 1994. It is named after Ron Holloway (1909-2003) of The Griffin Press, Auckland, who donated equipment, books, and archives to the university. The publication policy of The Holloway Press is to publish a range of texts appropriate to the technology of hand-printing which have unusual literary, artistic, scholarly, or historical interest, and which are unsuitable for commercial publication. Wherever possible, the books include illustrative material. Jason Books is proud to stock books from The Holloway press. A list of titles currently in stock follows.

Loney, Alan. Fishwork. ill. Gimblett, Max. Auckland: The Holloway Press, 2009. Limited/Numbered. 4to. Cloth. Signed by Author. New On a visit to New York in 2005, Alan Loney saw eight paintings in Max Gimblett’s studio (a ninth was already in the possession of John Yau) of a variety of fish in a set of ambiguous relationships with the moon. These so intrigued the poet that he wrote nine poems in response to them. Realising that if a letterpress edition were to be produced of the poems, and that the paintings could not be reproduced by that process, a set of fresh drawings was done by the artist in the response to the poems. The nine drawings are printed in a variety of colours, with each poem printed over the drawing in metallic inks. The book is designed and printed by Alan Loney at Carolyn Fraser’s Idlewild Press in Melbourne, Australia, on a Vandercook cylinder press on damped BFK Rives and Magnani papers. Types are Dante and Castellar. The drawings are reproduced from photopolymer plates made by Boxcar Press in Syracuse, New York, and the binding is executed by Wolfgang Schaefer in Melbourne. This is #72 of an edition of 80, one of 50 standard copies (45 for sale) in yellow cloth spine and red cloth over boards.  $700.00

Bensemann, Leo. Dark Arts Notes on Printing Publishing & Painting Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Peter Simpson. Auckland: The Holloway Press, 2011. Limited/Numbered. 8vo. Decorative Cloth. Signed by Editor. New ISBN: 978096461835. Typeset and letterpress printed by Longley Printing Company on a Heidelburg KSBA press. Type is12 pt granjon. The paper is 104 gsm Sundance natural white. Illustrations printed from photopolymer plates made by Inline Graphics. Binding is by Design Bind. #28 of 100 numbered copies, signed by editor. 82pp, photographic frontispiece tipped-in, 9 B/W plates. ‘Dark Arts contains Leo Bensemann’s thoughts on a range of the activities which occupied him through a long and busy career from the 1930s to the 1980s: the history of printing, typography, calligraphy, book design, book illustration, graphic arts, and histories of two seminal institutions to which he was central: The Caxton Press and The Group (1927-77). Most of the essays have never been published and were found among Bensemann’s papers during Peter Simpson’s research for his book Fantastica: The World of Leo Bensemann (AUP, 2011). Bensemann is an entertaining and elegant writer, and Dark Arts provides insight not only into his thinking about topics of interest to this most versatile artist and printer but also into intellectual and cultural history during the decades in which a national literature and art was in formation, a process to which he made a significant and still under-recognised contribution. The book is illustrated with images from Bensemann’s own books and other Caxton Press publications.’ (Holloway Press)  $300.00
