The Oscar Wilde
World of Gossip

by Neil Titley / Paperback 686pg

An altogether astonishing collection of pen-portraits of more than three hundred of Wilde’s friends & enemies — an international cast of actors, revolutionaries, barristers, prostitutes, frontiersmen, politicians, mystics, writers, soldiers, pornographers, diplomats, adventurers, and confidence tricksters.
Author Neil Titley carries us from gutter to palace, college to courtroom, battlefield to brothel. An exuberant compendium of malicious rumour, salacious detail, and backstabbing one-liners — it is also the funniest book ever written about the Age of Wilde.

Lydia Tomkiw

Deluxe Paperback / 406pg

In the late 70s, Lydia Tomkiw blazed out from Chicago's intertwined worlds of poetry & punk rock. She established herself as a distinctive and significant contemporary poet, culminating in her inclusion in the inaugural 1988 volume of Best American Poetry. Momentum was gathering behind her beloved, critically acclaimed new wave band Algebra Suicide. Then, after fifteen promising, trailblazing years, things fell apart.
This new collection presents all of Tomkiw's long out-of-print work in facsimile editions along with over 180 uncollected poems, joined by critical and biographical essays.
Currently over 250 titles, in downloadable, searchable, sortable, high-resolution formats.

A striking visual history of 20th century Ukrainian culture, nationally and in the diaspora.

Vitally enriches our understanding of contemporary Eastern European design traditions.

A fresh and singular source of visual inspiration for design, typography, and illustration.
