NOTES:

I’d wanted a booklet printed for me by the Rampant Lions Press since I first started to consider publishing fine press. When, in 2007, the proprietor, Sebastian Carter, told me of his intention to cease printing by the end of the following year, I decided there and then to ask if he’d print something for me before the opportunity was lost forever. Carter agreed, and the eventual result was this first Chestnut Press publication. Impeccably printed – as one would expect from the Rampant Lions Press – I think it a most handsome and worthwhile start to my imprint.
