About Prydwen Press

Prydwen Press, LLC is a small press specializing in illustrated books. Our emphasis is on quality production, elegant design, inspired illustration, and witty text. We aim to establish a name in the children’s illustrated  Book market with a product line that crosses over into the gift book and coffee table book categories.

Our first title The Vanities, featuring unique collage illustrations by Terence Lawlor, is a perfect example of the kind of product we intend to go forward with in the future.

Deciphering a logo

The Prydwen was one of King Arthur’s boats. He is said to have sailed to Ireland on the Prydwen to obtain the cauldron of Diwrnach.

The sail of our logo features the symbol from the celtic rune Wunja. The rune can be translated to mean JOY.
