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 Times Literary Supplement: “Patrick Eyres has stamped his personality on the feisty, visually distinctive and intellectually robust New Arcadian Journal, which takes as its primary battleground the cultural politics of eighteenth-century historical landscapes, and especially their man-made iconography. Adding a modern resonance are disquisitions on garden works by contemporary artists, notably the late Scottish garden-maker, artist and concrete poet, Ian Hamilton Finlay”.
