The Holloway Press was established at
The University of Auckland, New Zealand, in 1994. It is
named after Ron Holloway (1909-2003) of The Griffin
Press, Auckland, who donated equipment, books and
archives to the University. The Press was set up in the
Library of the Tamaki Campus under the management of
Alan Loney, poet and printer. All books published up to
1998 were designed and printed by Alan Loney. Most
Holloway Press Books are now designed, printed and bound
by Tara McLeod.
The publication policy of The Holloway Press 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. Wherever possible
Holloway Press books include illustrative material.
After some years of inactivity since Alan Loney’s
retirement in 1998 the Press resumed an active
publishing programme in 2001.
In 2000, 2002 and 2003 The Holloway Press received
grants from the Vice-Chancellor’s Development Fund.
Management of the Press is located within the Faculty of Arts, University of Auckland. The Director is Dr. Peter Simpson.
