New Release

 

One of my favorite books we've ever published, Dennis Parry's SEA OF GLASS (1955), is now up for order worldwide. Though it got rave reviews when originally published, it fell into oblivion when Parry died tragically at age 42, two months after its release. We discovered it through artist Edward Gorey, who called it the most unjustly neglected book he knew, maybe not surprisingly, since the book features the same mix of the comic and macabre that characterizes Gorey's art.
