Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Literary press material of American writer and illustrator Greg Boyd. The collection (1979-2012) covers Asylum Arts and the Unicorn Press, as well as the written and graphic work of Boyd himself.
Founded in 1966 by Teo Savory and Alan Brilliant in Santa Barbara, California, Unicorn Press began in conjunction with Ken Maytag's Unicorn Book Shop. Beginning with poetry postcards and posters, the press began publishing poetry broadsides using handset type printed on a letterpress. In the early 1980s the press relocated to Greensboro, North Carolina. By the late 1980s, Unicorn Press had published almost 100 books, including prose poems and original block illustrations by Greg Boyd.
