BARRY MOSER: List of Publications 1995-2009


This is a list of books (1995 – 2007) Barry Moser has written, illustrated, designed, published under his own Pennyroyal Press imprint, contains articles by or about him, or to which he has contributed a jacket or frontispiece illustration, or any combination of these activities. Though care has been taken to include all his books, there are undoubtedly titles missing due to the sheer number of titles and Mr. Moser’s lack of anal retentiveness. Therefore this list should not be construed as being bibliographically accurate. The arrangement is chronological (more or less) and is complete (more or less) from 1995 forward.
