Books & Broadsides
Thee Hellbox Press creates and prints a limited number of projects that have become treasured collector items by book lovers for both their content and the artistry with which they were created.
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.
