Works about this Work

The Mandrake Press Booklet Michael Taffe , 2010 single work criticism
— Appears in: Biblionews and Australian Notes and Queries , September - December no. 367 - 368 2010; (p. 84-89)

'Most from the Victorian branch of the BCSA who know me are aware of my preoccupation with PR (Inky) Stephensen's Mandrake Press. As far back as 1985 Professor Reg Carr maintained that this press and its limited liability successor were 'almost entirely neglected.' While paying tribute to Craig Munro's biography of Stephensen, Carr also acknowledged the well documented history of Fanfrolico Press from which Mandrake Press grew. John Arnold's 2009 monograph and comprehensive bibliography, The Fanfrolico Press: Satyrs, Fauns and Fine Books, has confirmed the place of Fanfrolico in the pantheon of early twentieth century fine and private presses.' (from author's introduction p. 84)
