Mission, British Columbia: Barbarian Press


Many owners of private presses around the world have readily taken to using the frontispiece in their limited edition hand-crafted publications. Jan and Crispin Elsted, owners of Barbarian Press in British Columbia, Canada, are no exception. Indeed, they make a point of publishing limited edition books that celebrate wood engravings as an art form. Here they have combined Robin Skelton’s translation of poems by Rufinus, fl. 390 AD, with delicate engravings by the Yukon-born Wesley W. Bates. It is no wonder that the Elsteds were awarded the Robert R. Reid Award in 2015 for extraordinary contributions to the book arts in Canada.
