When trapped in the arctic circle, a fleet of English sailors began to write a newspaper. The Green Lantern Press is proud to announce a reprint of that manuscript, The North Georgia Gazette, originally printed in 1821. A reinterpretation of the original manuscripts, this edition also includes an excerpt from the Captain’s journal, annotations of a contemporary transcriber (Lily Robert-Foley), an essay about contemporary arctic exploration by John Huston, and original art work by Deb Sokolow, Daniel Anhorn, Jason Dunda and Rebecca Grady. Screen Print artist (Sonnenzimmer) and musician Nick Butcher will screen print the covers of this edition of 250 and press a seven inch for the book.
