Welcome to the blog. The H&B website is http://www.horseandbuggypress.com
Please know the website is being overhauled and updated this fall/winter, and when that project (which will result in a more comprehensive portfolio section with recent work of higher quality photographic reproductions, and the ability to see images larger) is completed, this blog will see dramatically increased activity. If you would like to be placed on the e-mailing list, (a note every two or three months) please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org

A curated group show by Triangle area book artists at the Daylight Project Space in Hillsborough. Two Horse & Buggy Press books are presented (for handling) along with a diverse range of work by fifteen other area book artists.

I will be sharing a booth at Centerfest in downtown Durham this year with Laura Korch of Trout Ceramics. (I designed the ads and posters for the Centerfest festival this year and received a booth in exchange for working on a discounted rate for the Durham Arts Council). My work will be at the booth all weekend, and with special discounts to encourage consumption, but I may only be at the booth the first and last couple hours of each day. Laura makes great pots and is good people. Please stop by and say hi if you are out and about.
David Need Readings for the H&B title Roses: The Late French Poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke

Durham County Library Talk
Thursday, Dec 4: 7pm – 8:30pm
This informal show and share talk will center on book design philosophies within recent H&B titles, as well as sharing content from the books, stories from the collaborations, and providing a glimpse into the behind the scenes production side of making book editions that often involve hand-printing and hand-bindings. Books will be available for reading and purchasing. Joanne Abel is the Humanities and Adult Programming Coordinator for the Library and has been putting on a wide range of stellar events and talks over the last few years. Please consider getting on their mailing list (e-mail and print) to be kept in the loop.
