The Openings Press

The Openings Press, initiated by Dom Sylvester Houedard and John Furnival in 1964, and based out of Gloucestershire, was a very small press dedicated to publishing concrete poetry. As well as self-published projects, the Press also published the work of Ian Hamilton Finlay, Tom Phillips, bpNichol, Stephen Hoare, Julien Blaine, Eugen Gomringer and several others.

The above prospectus provides a statement of intent:

"We aim to produce a series that is a complete integration of graphics and texts, ie. not an illustrated poem or a captioned drawing."
