Under the Hill
         Beautiful, pointless books...

A discreet selection of the most irrelevant books known to literature; from our edition of Horace Walpole's Hieroglyphic Tales (published in an edition of six copies - one less than Walpole made - web version coming soon) to our acclaimed biography of the 1890s poet Enoch Soames, Cypher Press books defy categorisation—and the clamour of eager booksellers.

On the principle that the cobbler's children has no shoes, this site, remains proudly under construction. Links to the less important emanation of the press can be found at left. Please bear with us while we compile this the most comprehensive collections of emphemera known to literature.
