Longbarrow Press has created a limited series of special packages comprising a selection of pamphlets, recordings and scarce ephemera. Each of these three packages (including pamphlets and CDs by Kelvin Corcoran, Matthew Clegg and Lee Harwood) is priced at £10 (inclusive of UK p&p) and is exclusive to the website. The packages make an ideal (and affordable) introduction to the work of the press. Click here for more information and to order via PayPal.
