The Type Desk reviews John Rodker’s Ovid Press

A quote from The Type Desk’s review of John Rodker’s Ovid Press.

Gerald W. Cloud, author of John Rodker’s Ovid Press: A Bibliographical History, is an investigator with a bent for narrative writing about books. A good biography—in this case a biographic bibliography—takes inventory of discrete bits of collected evidence and sorts it to reveal a historic narrative otherwise unseen.

Celebration for Oak Knoll author Gerald Cloud

January 25, 2011 Leave a comment

Last night, I had the privilege of attending a celebration of the publication of Gerald Cloud’s John Rodker’s Ovid Press at the Grolier Club in New York City. It was an enjoyable evening of book talk, anecdotes, and of course, wine! Gerald shared how he chose Rodker as the topic of his dissertation, a great story that we hope he will share on this blog sometime soon.

Gerald also signed some copies of his book at the event, and three signed copies are still available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are interested in purchasing one, please email

As Gerald is a graduate of the University of Delaware, UDaily published a nice write-up of the event here. Copies of the book can be purchased on our website here.
