Sillybos was the name given to a hanging tag that would be attached to a papyrus or parchment scroll. The σίλλυβος (sillybos) would identify the title of the work and sometimes the name of the author. I have chosen Sillybos for this new collection of chapbooks as it will cover a wide range of subjects and I wanted the unique design and content of each book to lead, rather than the title or author. A taster of each book will be presented online, but the rest will be a surprise!

Launching April 2024.
