About Horse & Buggy Press
Dave Wofford of Horse & Buggy Press has designed over 150 books, including over 20 fine press titles that bear the H&B imprint, many which have won awards for their content and design. This includes It Had Wings, the 1997 publication which features eight pen and ink drawings Allan made to illustrate his oft anthologized short story (originally published by Knopf in White People). This hand-printed, hand-bound edition was produced in a limited edition of 335 signed and numbered copies and also included a “Story of the Story,” in which Allan details turning a novella into a much shorter form after receiving insightful feedback from music composer Bruce Saylor, who in turn set the story to a musical score.
Dave recently unearthed a forgotten copy of It Had Wings (long out-of-print and sought after by collectors) and is auctioning it off. Please visit the Horse and Buggy Press website to learn more. Monies raised will go directly to helping fund the next H&B book project.
