Welcome to the New Arcadian Press

The New Arcadian Press generates a continuous programme of research into cultural landscape and, through the New Arcadian Journal, creates the fine press publication that combines original text with artist-illustration.

“The feisty, visually distinctive and intellectually robust New Arcadian Journal … is refreshingly original … Image and text confidently complement each other … [It] has found a place in the literary landscape, and made us all the richer.” The Times Literary Supplement.
