Piecing it Together Cover

SOLD OUT!!! Piecing It Together by spoken word artist Tanya Neumeyer, is unique in many regards. It has been printed in letterpress, making it one of only twenty such books printed in Canada each year. The book is designed by Hugh Walter Barclay and printed at Thee Hellbox Press, known for unique outside-the-box designs. This book represents a new paradigm in book design, because one can purchase new poetic work by Tanya Neumeyer and simply add it to the existing cover. While performances of these spoken word pieces are time- and place-dependent, this book gives the reader the opportunity to study and appreciate Tanya’s work; her courage and passion for ideas and the art become evident. Only 74 copies are being offer for sale at $20.00 per copy (only twenty dollars, you say!)

We don’t expect these copies to last very long based on the low price and the number of individuals who collect Hellbox Press books.

Those wishing to reserve a copy should e-mail: h.w.barclay@sympatico.ca Please put “Hellbox” in the subject line.  Copies can be returned for full refund if desired.

Thee Hellbox Press (1981) is the private press of book artist, Hugh Walter Barclay. Books are printed letterpress, using a circa 1890, 8 x 10 Chandler/Price press. Many of the private presses publish reprints of work, and others publish poetry. Hugh prefers using original, powerful work in either poetry or prose. The press started with a hellbox of worn and broken type – and thus, the name. The press is at Hugh’s home in Kingston, Ontario.
