BLACK SPARROW PRESS
John Martin (b.1930, not to be confused with the nineteenth century illustrator of Milton and the Bible) started the Black Sparrow Press in 1966 in order to publish out-of-the-mainstream writers in small finely printed editions many of which were designed by his wife Barbara Martin. From October, 1972, through September, 1976, Black Sparrow also published Sparrow, a literary monthly generally sixteen pages in length and usually devoted to the work of one author. In 2002 the press became an imprint of David R. Godine, Inc., under the name Black Sparrow Books. Godine has the backlist from the John Martin days, however, and therefore some titles remain available in the primary retail market.
