J. M. Coetzee comes to Oxford!

J. M. Coetzee is coming to Oxford in June! We will be going to hear him at the Sheldonian Theatre on the 11th, and he has also generously agreed to sign some books for us to help raise funds! To celebrate, here, from the archives, is a video of him signing title pages for us at the former Oak Tree Fine Press base in South Africa:

Air - Water - Fire - Earth

Had a couple of chaps from Oxfam in the office earlier this week. Oxfam are producing four small paperback publications featuring new and extract texts from numerous well known authors. They are also considering doing a special signed collector's edition and came round to ask for advice. It was pretty heartening to realise how much we have learned over the last few years, and Andy Ray and Frank Atterbury were also both on hand to give expert guidance. Looking forward to seeing what you do, Oxfam!
