Holloway Press

Holloway Press was established at the University of Auckland in the Library of the Tamaki Campus in 1994. Poet Alan Loney[1] was responsible for printings until 1998, and books are now almost wholly designed, printed and bound by Tara McLeod[2] under the direction of Dr. Peter Simpson.

The Holloway Press has received assistance from the University Development Fund[3] for its activity within the Faculty of Arts. Its policy is "to publish a range of texts appropriate to the technology of hand-printing which have unusual literary, artistic, scholarly and/or historical interest and which are unsuitable for commercial publication".[4]
