ITHYS PRESS is a fine-press publishing house founded in Dublin and now situated in West Cork, Ireland. We are exclusively dedicated to producing first editions of new works by today’s groundbreaking writers and previously unknown works by outstanding modern wordsmiths.
Each Ithys book is a genuinely international artistic, intellectual, and aesthetic collaboration: our texts are unique, illuminated by original artwork, made with the finest materials, and set, printed and bound by highly skilled and committed artisans. Most of our books are produced entirely by hand, letterpress-printed and hand-bound. These extraordinary limited editions marry texts of cultural significance with original artistic expression.
We are especially keen to work with literary scholars and literary estates desirous of seeing into print fine-press editions of newly discovered, previously unpublished, or newly edited works by modernist and contemporary writers. For example, we are currently discussing potential publishing projects featuring Djuna Barnes, Bob Dylan, Robert Graves, Vladimir Nabokov, VS Naipaul, Gertrude Stein, and Virginia Woolf, among others. To such an end, we encourage scholars, archivists, and curators to contact us with ideas for new publications.
We aim to publish one major book per year, with smaller projects and broadsides appearing intermittently. Before long, we also hope to launch Ithysia, a fine-press chapbook series featuring new poetry and short prose from around the world.
We welcome suggestions for new titles and for original artwork. Please contact us with a brief description of your proposal/work.
