Arion Press Classics, 1975-2018


Swan’s Fine Books is proud to announce the offering of Arion Press publications from the retired publisher’s personal stock, beginning February 2024:  these are pristine copies, in their original wrapping.

We are working directly with Arion Press founder Andrew Hoyem and his wife Diana Ketcham to represent titles from among the 113 created by Hoyem from 1975 until his retirement in 2018, including many with acclaimed artists such as William Kentridge, Kiki Smith, Wayne Thiebaud, and Kara Walker.

Arion Press is often called the most important fine press of the mid 20th  century through early 21st century, known for monumental undertakings such as Joyce’s Ulysses, Melville’s Moby-Dick, Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, and a letterpress printed Bible - among more than 100 works of poetry, fiction, history, and science, including specially commissioned texts and new translations. 

More information can be viewed on our web site here.  In addition, a full list of the specific titles that will be available will be announced shortly.  Should you have questions in the interim, please contact us via either phone or email.
