Lollipop thanks Bob Trubshaw of Heart of Albion Press for hosting the first version of this new venture. We hope very much it will prove a useful centre for little press information, in the way printed catalogues and individual press flyers have in the past. It is always useful to encourage direct sales to the public, and this only needs clear up-to-date information and easy access to that information. The internet seems an ideal medium for lists and reference material, and it is high time little presses took full advantage of the opportunities.
