Issued in 1973 the first title from Pushcart Press--this handbook, through testimonies, suggestions, and the lessons of literary history, instructs authors on do-it-yourself publication without the assistance of commercial or vanity publishers. It has been in print for almost twenty-five years, and is constantly consulted by writers. For the first edition, Publishers Weekly commented: "Henderson has ranged the field of do-it-yourself publishing in creating an authentic anthology of articles describing the nuts and bolts processes, the hazards and personal woes and rewards of the game. Included are the revelations by the famous: Anais Nin handprinting her first two books; Leonard and Virginia Woolf on the Hogarth Press; the late Alan Swallow's beginnings; Stewart Brand on the Whole Earth Catalog and more than a score of lesser-known people who've published their own (and others') poems, novels, craftbooks, cookbooks, and even prison anthologies. Enlightening, varied, candid, and zippily illustrated, including an excellent chapter of how-to tips.
