What they're saying

Thoroughly satisfying. A great start as one of the first books from a new small press in Toronto.

Globe and Mail on The Man Who Remembered the Moon

Dave Green vividly juxtaposes textures and moods in his pictures, arousing an emotional response whether from the nude stills, diverse faces or simply a cemetery where a crippled old man comes face to face with death. A major achievement for this artist.

Goodreads on Personal

The stories in this collection are about quiet, yet intense emotion; the tunnel vision selfishness of childhood, a tragic familiarization with rejection, miscommunication and its resulting loneliness. There was something I took away from each story, something that resonated with me.

Goodreads on You Call This Home

This sly, whimsical debut collection by Toronto poet Svetlana Lilova is not much more than pocket-sized, but its poetic reach is expansive... At their best, these epigrammatic gems resonate profoundly.

Toronto Star on Metaphysical Dictionary

A series of beautiful short poems and abstract sentences. The concept of this book is so unique and the end product, in both the physical and written sense, is just mesmerizing. This book required my entire heart and mind whilst reading it.
