Enitharmon Editions ~ England
(Stephen Stuart-Smith)

Share this page:
Enitharmon Press is an independent British publishing house specializing in artists’ books, poetry, limited editions and original prints. The name of the press comes from the poetry of William Blake: Enitharmon was a character who represented spiritual beauty and poetic inspiration. The press's logo derives from a Blake woodcut. The press was founded by Alan Clodd in 1967. In 1987, as he neared 70, Clodd passed on the directorship of Enitharmon to Stephen Stuart-Smith.

Enitharmon: "Texas 1964 represents an amazing discovery. Duane Michals, one of America’s pre-eminent photographers completed a project in 1964 to depict different aspects of the state of Texas. Michals recently discovered in his archive ‘Duane’s Texas tempest in a teapot treasure trove’, the whole brilliant and resonant portrait of that celebrated state – captivating black-and-white images published here for the first time.

“Tender, witty, poignant and truthful, Duane Michals’ Texas 1964 captures a society in some ways unchanged from its first controversial settlement, with its racial divisions and economic and social gulfs, and in others redolent of the new America – commercialized, confident, forward-looking.”
