Nualláin House, Publishers
Poetry, Fiction, Nonfiction, Art Prints, Literary Ephemera, Print & Digital Editions

Nualláin House, Publishers began print on demand publishing of “literature as reading entertainment” eleven years ago utilizing readily available digital technology and desktop design options. Because technology changes the way one does business, Nualláin House has slowly shifted emphasis away from the production of print volumes of poetry and fiction to the wider readership accessible through the internet. Digital media in the form of blogs and websites provide an entry for the independent artist and writer to launch shoestring operations that do not demand much more than time, determination, and a little imagination. To that end, along with a new easier to read WordPress theme, Nualláin House has incorporated two fresh projects, available in the features below or through the site’s menu bar, to reflect the expanded emphasis: Affiliated Sites and Bamboo Leaf Studio. Affiliated Sites allows access to four additional sites (Parole, Dime Pulp, Ode To Sunset, Made In The Shade) offering poetry, nonfiction, and fiction. Bamboo Leaf Studio, presenting galleries of assorted literary art and ephemera (Smoking Poets, Faux Koans, Women Poet Postcards), highlights a unique synthesis of art and literature.

Smoking Poets

The Smoking Poets series came about in an attempt at replicating a photograph of a poet (Samuel Beckett below) through the medium of a carved linoleum block. Soon other photos of poets smoking surfaced or were suggested by those who viewed the first successful attempt. Most were of men smoking cigarettes or pipes. Unfortunately the number of women smoking and who were…

Faux Koans

“I had the idea of making Buddhist inspired prints featuring what I call faux koans since historically some of the earliest Japanese prints were devotional depictions of Buddhist saints or precepts sold to pilgrims traveling to shrines and temples. They are faux koans in the sense that they imply an ironic intent and emphasize mystification rather than clarification.” –Pat Nolan
