Guillemot Press is a new small independent publisher with a preference for the simple, thoughtful and beautiful.
The Guillemot, Uria aalge, spends most of its time out at sea, but in Spring we flock landward, clustered on the country’s edges in dense cliff face cities to exchange stories. Guillemot Press will work with writers and illustrators to produce pamphlets and books that are attractive to read and to hold. We will be hosting events and readings, playing with book-making and performance, displaying and preening.
We publish illustrated poetry and single-story pamphlets, postcards, plays and full collections. We have a love of the edges, the coasts and moors, woods and sea, and of all the beasts and fishes hidden beneath the surface. We also have a love of abstraction, absence, play and experiment – new ways of looking at where we are and who we are.
