Perdrix Press:

Publications to Date

Perdrix Press was established by me in 1997 as a convenient way of issuing mostly collaborative works of poetry and translation, particularly those with a strong visual component.

Paul Celan, Leicester Kyle, Wendy Nu, Ezra Pound, Arthur Rimbaud, and Gabriel White are some of the writers and artists who've been published by the press so far.

Let's hope there'll be many more to come.

The postal address remains:

Perdrix Press
6A Hastings Rd
Mairangi Bay
North Shore City 0630
New Zealand

If you wish to order a book (or to make general enquiries) you can either leave a comment at the bottom of any page on this blog, or alternatively email me here.
