Candlestick Press
Poetry Cards


The home of quality woollen home furnishings and accessories

Candlestick Press is a small, independent publisher based in Nottingham. Since 2008 we have been publishing poetry pamphlets aimed equally at people familiar with poetry and those who are not. Their pamphlets make an ideal alternative to a mainstream greetings card. They have matching envelopes and bookmarks left blank for your message and are excellent companions on boring journeys or good for a bedtime read.


Candlestick Press publishes pamphlets because they love the historic associations with literature, politics, philosophy, radical thought and social welfare. They are the real thing – short, thoughtful and to the point.


‘...perfect for those of you with a thoughtful
imagination and a craving for beauty.’
