blewointment press

blewointment

blewointment press was a book publishing company that grew out of blewointment, a literary periodical founded in 1962 by the poet bill bissett and noted for its lowercase, phonetic spellings and for its hand-decorated and mixed-media covers and inserts. In 1967, blewointment began to publish chapbooks by authors such as Margaret Atwood, Michael Ondaatje, Maxine Gadd, Al Purdy and Gwendolyn MacEwen. bissett sold the press in 1983, and it has continued as Nightwood Editions—which, in 2005, launched a new blewointment imprint.
