Registration form for
new private press books

If you are a private press and have a new book that you would like to be listed in the next issue of Parenthesis, and/or announced to FPBA members via the FPBA e-newsletter, you can use this form to send us the details and/or to offer a copy for review. File writing test.

Please read the following instructions first.

Books are eligible for inclusion in the Parenthesis if they are printed by hand using letterpress, lithography, and/or intaglio. Generally, only books in the English language are included, although occasional exceptions are made if in the opinion of the editors they would be of interest to English-speaking collectors.

Please complete the 'Your Press' section in full. Then, if you have just one book to report, complete the 'Your Book' section, and click the SUBMIT button at the end. If you have further books to report, navigate back to this form, fill in just your press name again in the 'Your Press' section, complete the details for the next book, and then click on SUBMIT. Repeat for each further book you wish to report.

Images of work may be included where possible if the editor finds them on the web page for the book.

The Small Print. The FPBA provides this as a free service to FPBA members. Others are welcome to post to this site, and may or may not be listed as space is available. We shall endeavour to transcribe your description accurately and use it verbatim. We cannot guarantee publication, and all items are subject to the editor's discretion.

Your Press

Please complete this section in full for the first book.
For subsequent books, just fill in the press name.

Your Book

Your book may be listed in either or both of the two places. Please read the following:

Listing in FPBA electronic communications. (Currently, this means the new book listing on the web site plus the email newsletter in the UK.) If this is all you would like, you need only complete the 'Press name', 'Title', and 'E-newsletter listing' boxes.

For a listing in 'Books briefly noted' in Parenthesis, complete all the details requested.

If you would like to offer a copy for review in a future issue of Parenthesis, check the box here and a member of the Parenthesis team will contact you. We appreciate that giving away review copies from a limited edition is difficult and are happy to discuss another arrangement which would allow your book to be reviewed.

If this book is available in sheets and you are willing to have it offered through the [UK] Society of Bookinders' newsletter, please check.
