The private Parisian printing presses of the 1920’s have an enchanting and sometimes sordid history. Hall of Wonders works hard to bring you the publications of their oft-forgotten female authors.
Northern Irish author, Kathleen Coyle has experienced somewhat of a renaissance in recent years. She published nineteen novels and two autobiographies throughout her lifetime. In 1926, she moved to Paris where she became and acquaintance of James Joyce and Nora Barnacle. Coyle left Europe in 1937 for New Hampshire, where she joined the MacDowell Colony.
All Hall of Wonders books/ephemera come in acid-free protective sleeves.
