    I am a professional calligrapher and would like to obtain copyright permission to use Kathleen Raine’s poem ‘Nocturn’ from Selected Poems, Published in 1988 by Golgonooza Press, ISBN 0903880385.
    I am a Fellow of the Society of Scribes and Illuminators and wish to use this poem in a piece of work for an exhibition in York Minster Cathedral in celebrating of the society’s 95th anniversary in 2016.

    Hi Maureen,
    That was published by our compatriots in England… Golgonooza Press. We are also Blake lovers, in the USA and have a slightly different name. Search in England, specifically.

    [this is a duplicate of the email I sent directly to you . . . I’m not sure if that address is still current for you]

    Dear Julia,

    Hello to you! I hope you are doing well. The picture of you and Claire Van Vliet on the Golgonooza website is wonderful! Nice, welcoming feel to your site, too.

    So — classic faux pas: I have stumbled onto a tiny bit of italic type within a small commission project already partly composed — and I realize I don’t have the italic in 12 pt ATF Garamond. I vaguely remember, or at least I think I do — when Theo Rehak cast a lot of the roman for a book project years ago — Theo saying that the 12 pt italic matrices were owned by Golgonooza. If that’s the case, or if you have some type standing, I would be very grateful to know.

    Might you be willing to call? Cell 860-759-2658 (occasionally it takes a fancy to not ring); studio landline 860-344-8644.

    I hope this email reaches you; will send duplicate through your website portal just in case.

    With all very best wishes,
    Robin
