About Polpresa Press

Polpresa Press is a new independent publisher based in London producing books of general cultural interest. We launched in 2011 with David's Box - The Journals and Letters of a Man Diagnosed as Schizophrenic, 1960-1971 (edited by Richard Hallam and Michael Bender). This book is revealing of past mental health practices but also contains many messages that are relevant to social policy today (see the page on this website).

Our list will grow slowly with books of topical interest in the area of society, politics, and the arts.

Circular Relations (Richard Hallam, December, 2o15) is a book of sayings and aphorisms, each with a paired drawing. It is a wry and humorous look at how people relate to themselves and each other (ISBN, 9780956097538, 80 pp, 12 x 12 cm, £6.99, paperback).

Thalma: An Artist’s Life (edited by Richard Hallam and Sylvie Venet-Tupy) is a retrospective study of the life and work of Israeli-born animator, Thalma Goldman (Cohen) who, despite winning awards for her films in the 1970s and 80s, has not received sufficient attention as an artist in her own right. It was published in Spring 2016.
