Potato Press is a very small press, a very small press indeed. It’s really me, Dylan Harris, self–publishing some short assemblies of my poetry to fund subscriptions to poetry magazines and beer after readings.
I’ve selected what I consider to be amongst my best poetry to date, and intend to publish it in a small chapbook, pennies permitting. The chapbook is called, would you believe, “chapbook”. It’s licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution–ShareAlike License.
I put together some assemblies of my poetry to see if I could raise the money for a round in the pub after a poetry reading. These assemblies simply represent all my work on paper; the poems are not selected. They are:
These four collections are copylefted. You can copy, modify and distribute them yourselves, subject to the General Arts Licence. In the unlikely event you want to use some of my work free of copyleft, contact me. The General Arts Licence is not exclusive; I’m happy to negotiate a normal commercial contract for the usual consideration. I’d also be amazed that someone was interested, but that’s another matter.
You can download copies of the files I used to generate the copyleft booklets. For various reasons, these files are in Microsoft Office 2000 format. If you are unhappy about using a propriety product to reproduce a copyleft work, you can recreate the booklets entirely using the original material found on this site. I’ll admit that I had intended to get Word to generate HTML versions of the booklets for reproduction, but what it produced was codswallop. Visit each collection to get the details for your duplication.
If you’d like to buy a copy of any of these booklets from me, please contact me. I’m not expecting any real interest, as you can probably tell from the complete lack on online ordering system. Each volume costs three pounds, or ten pounds for all four volumes, plus postage and packaging (A4) from the UK.
