Happy Dragon’s Press (UK)

December 14, 2012


Hand-printed books of poetry, plus tips and supplies for fellow letterpress printers.

The Happy Dragons’ Press imprint is 40 this year! And it just so happens that 2009 also marks 60 years since Stafford started printing. Find out how we got where we are today with this brief history.

After the sad death of Roy Lewis in 1996, The Happy Dragons’ Press inherited the type, machinery and spirit of The Keepsake Press. Shirley Toulson — a noted author, poet and editor — introduced Roy to many of the poets he went on to publish. With her guidance, and that of Rosemary Grant, The Happy Dragons’ Press continues the Keepsake’s programme of poetry publication.
