Angelico Press, you say? Hmmmm…

What has our nostalgic and handsome friend been up to?

And looky here at this cover! Strangely familiar, that.


  1. Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says

    A lot of good stuff on their catalog, to be sure, but — thanks to an essay by none other than Daniel Mitsui — I know better than to bring a book by sexual predator Eric Gill back into print with a laudatory introduction. That’s one awful apple in an otherwise pretty appealing bushel.

    • I read that essay, and I won’t even use Gill Sans font anymore. Despicable.

    • Jonathan Potter says

      I’m confused. Are you actually affiliated with this outfit, Angelico?

      • I think the man meant what he said – he knows better than to bring Gill back into print with a laudatory intro.

        • Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says

          That’s a bingo. I’m no more affiliated with Angelico Press than Jonathan Potter runs the town from It’s a Wonderful Life. The link Lickona posted was the first I’d ever seen or heard of ’em.

          They should purge their catalog of that Eric Gill book, but I do wish them well.

          • Jonathan Potter says

            I don’t run the town, but I am the head librarian at Pottersville Public Library in the Georgeless version of reality.

  2. Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says

    Interesting detail: Four of the thirteen Trustees of Angelico Press are J.D.’s.

    They also have a Nashville Dominican; Anthony Esolen; and — perhaps my favorite, at the very head of the list — a woman who rejoices in the given name of ‘MacBeth’.

    • Imelda/Sophia, O.P. says

      Sister Mary Dominic Pitts, O.P. is a Southern lady after the mold of Flannery O’Connor: tough, smart, and can spin a yarn like nobody I ever met.

      The inestimable Professor Esolen, to boot?

      I’m sold.
