Double launch

Denander and Ridgwell

Shipping end of April 2016


Due to various reasons the moons have aligned and Pig Ear Press is proud to announce the joint launch of Henry Denander's short story 'Glenn Gould never came to Nice' and 'Jamaica' the second story from Joseph Ridgwell's trilogy of travel stories.


Both stories while very different in style and content both have the usual PEP finishings with Letterpress-printed covers, hand-sewn binding and fancy end papers. 


You can purchase one or both books by visiting the Book Shop on this here site. Happy reading.

Harry Calhoun, author of Maintenance & Death

27 September 1953 - 31 October 2015


It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of friend and poet Harry Calhoun. Maintenance & Death was PEP's first solo collection and it is a book that both Harry and myself were very proud of. He was a complex human being like all the best people are and the period I spent working with him helped me to get to where I am now. He was always supportive and there with a joke or a word of encouragement and his loss is one that will continue to be felt by family, friends and readers for a very long time.
