Welcome to Ancora Press

  • Ancora-logoThe Ancora Press operates as two distinct entities under the one imprint.

     1. The Ancora Press in the Department of Fine Arts at Caulfield is managed by Dr Brian McMullin and specialises in handpress printing. [This part of the website is still under construction: please contact brian.mcmullin@monash.edu for further information.]

    2. The Ancora Press in the School of Languages, Literatures, Cultures and Linguistics at the Clayton Campus publishes conventional books and pamphlets on aspects of bibliography and book history. It continues the publication programme discontinued by the Centre for the Book in 2009, which in turn succeeded the Centre for Textual and Bibliographical Studies. The publisher of the Ancora Press is Professor Wallace Kirsop and the editor and project officer is Meredith Sherlock. Please see the Publications page for our catalogue.
