Producer of letterpress cards, prints and ephemera, chapbooks, artworks and sundry curiosities; my home is in the borderlands of England and Wales. After a year of doing a fortnightly market stall in the Butter Market in Hay-on-Wye, I have now opened a letterpress workshop at Hay Castle - at the top of the cobbled alleyway, next to the cafe terrace. Please contact me if making a special trip to make sure I'm there.
The name of my imprint, fallowpages, takes its inspiration from Harmas, the home of the French naturalist Jean-Henri Fabre from 1879 until his death in 1915. ‘Harmas’ means, in Provençal, a plot of uncultivated land, and indeed, Fabre used to keep a strip of just that in his garden to see what turned up. The name seemed a good fit for my various odds, ends and excursions, which often make use of chance finds and unexpected arrivals.
Apart from a few of the earlier Colva Books, nearly everything on the site comes in multiple copies and is available for sale; it’s only a sort of internet-induced lassitude that has prevented me from listing prices and paypal links, so please do contact me if anything strikes a chord. Either that or come and see me at the Castle.
I can be found, variously, at ...
