I am preparing a little Dorset blog, but it is not finished yet and therefore, in the meantime, here's a short one about a Dorset-based independent press, Sundial Press, which I discovered thanks to an article in the excellent Dorset Life magazine.
Based in the beautiful town of Sherborne, Sundial Press was launched by Frank Kibblewhite, someone who hasn't been afraid of trying out different things in his life: he has been a teacher and lecturer, a record and bookshop owner, a literary cataloguer...
Most of the books published by Sundial have something to do with Dorset and its ambition is to bring back books that have been out of print for years. The press started out with books written by members of the Powys family, and has now published other Dorset authors.
The Dorset Life article is now online HERE, so go and have a read as it is a very interesting story.
All the books published by the press sound very interesting, and I will be keeping an eye on their shop and hopefully purchase a few volumes...
This story is of particular interest to me as I wish to set up a small independent press myself one day.
I think therefore I write.
