Guillemot Press



Judges’ Comments

Guillemot Press has been previously shortlisted for the Publishers’ Award. The pamphlets that it produces are a pleasure to hold and to read: each one has a distinct sensory identity, with their different lovely (but sustainably produced) papers and playful variations in trim size. These beautiful pamphlets often feature explorations of relationship between text and image; in a broader sense, their exquisite physicality invites an embodied meditative experience of an immersion in poetry while being aware of the somatic experiences of reading, viewing and feeling. The judges were impressed by the sense of a sheer presence that Guillemot Press’ pamphlets project.
