Biographical Note

The Pentagram Press was founded in 1974 by the Milwaukee-based poet Michael Tarachow as a publishing outlet for poetry and other new literature. The press originally contracted offset printing to local Milwaukee houses, but in 1976 Tarachow began using the letterpress of a fellow printer to produce fine press books in limited editions. Pentagram remained a one-man operation and Tarachow did his own designing, typesetting, presswork, printing, binding, and publishing. In 1979 Tarachow moved Pentagram to Markesan, Wisconsin, where he printed books of poetry, fiction, literary criticism, and typographical design on his own nineteenth-century letterpress. By the time the press moved to Minneapolis in 1987, Pentagram was known as one of the best private literary presses in the United States, publishing editions of 200 – 500 copies by authors such as Bob Arnold, Tom Clark, Cid Corman, Theodore Enslin, Tom Montag, and Diane Wakoski. By the 1990s Pentagram began producing books of typographic ornaments, such as An Exploration of the Granjon Arabesques (1990). The Pentagram Press produced more than seventy-five books and a host of broadsides and other letterpress ephemera. Particularly well-established among Wisconsin and Midwestern poets and printers, Pentagram’s reputation also gained national and even international renown. Pentagram Press books have received awards and certificates of excellence from the American Institute of Graphic Design, the Chicago Book Clinic, and the Pushcart Prize.

Michael Tarachow

Michael Tarachow was born in 1954 and graduated from the University of Wisconsin. Tarachow began his printing and publishing career while still in college, financing the press at his own expense. In addition to operating the Pentagram Press, Tarachow has published his own poetry, including Somewhere Music, Somewhere Song (1981), The Turning Point (1981), and In Place & Out (1982).

Scope and Content Note

The Pentagram Press Archive, spanning the dates 1972 – 1999, documents the operations and output of the small fine press run by Michael Tarachow in Milwaukee and Markesan, in Wisconsin, and Minneapolis. The 14 linear feet of material contains correspondence, manuscript and printed poems, galleys, proofs, paste-ups, dummy copies, printing samples, news clippings, photographs, artwork, production materials, other ephemera, and all working files of the Pentagram Press. Correspondence in the collection is particularly rich in documenting Tarachow’s exchange with printers and writers in his pursuit of creative content and high quality presentation for the works of his press.

The organization of the collection largely follows the original order of the files maintained by Michael Tarachow, presented in three series. The first series contains correspondence to Tarachow, primarily from his published authors and other individuals involved with the works of the press. Tarachow also frequently corresponded with other small press and letterpress printers. The second series contains the files of the Pentagram Press, including business correspondence and production materials. The third series contains printing and publishing projects of the Pentagram Press.

Series I. Correspondence contains correspondence between Michael Tarachow and the authors, editors, publishers, printers, typographers, designers, and artists involved with the publications of the Pentagram Press. The series, which comprises the true bulk of the collection, is arranged alphabetically by the correspondent’s last name. The correspondence shows that Tarachow maintained a friendly exchange of ideas with his business associates, most of whom shared his interest in new literature and fine press publishing. Correspondents such as Tom Bridwell, John Judson, Robie Liscomb, and John Shannon were, like Tarachow, writers as well as printers and / or publishers of poetry. A significant number of Tarachow’s correspondents were fellow small press and letterpress printers from the United States, England, and Canada, with whom he exchanged ideas and materials. The letters reveal Tarachow’s commitment to literature, the arts, and fine press printing. The topics discussed in the letters range from the state of small presses during the 1970s and 1980s (see: Bob Arnold), technical and professional aspects of letterpress printing (see: Don Olsen, Emerson Wulling), book production and publishing (see: Robie Liscomb), and literary matters from the perspective of poets and publishers (see: Tom Montag, John Shannon, David Giannini). Tarachow’s own philosophy about fine press printing and literature is revealed in several letters sent to Chris Halla (F87). Following Tarachow’s original arrangement, the correspondence series includes -- in some instances -- manuscripts, dummy copies, and other production materials directly related to the correspondent.

Series II. Pentagram Press Files contains materials directly related to the business of the press, its authors, and the poetry, printing, bookmaking, and publishing of Michael Tarachow. The series includes correspondence, flyers, newsletters, news clippings, posters, catalogs, dummies, production materials, and other ephemera. The items contained in this series document the operation of a small press through printed materials related to book fairs, lectures, exhibitions, and publishing.

Series III. Projects contains poetry and prose manuscripts, artwork, production materials, and other items directly related to the production of Pentagram Press books and publication projects in which Tarachow was involved. The series is arranged alphabetically by the author’s last name. Included are the manuscripts and correspondence related to an unpublished anthology edited by Tarachow, Toward a Further Definition. Many of Pentagram’s authors participated in the project, and the work reflects the literary taste of Tarachow and his associates. Also, a large number of Pentagram’s early books are represented in this series and many of the production materials are heavily annotated by Tarachow. Many of the manuscripts in this series include autograph corrections and commentary, and in some cases the files include unpublished or rejected poems. The series reveals the various editorial, technical, and practical processes of printing and publishing letterpress books from design conception and pagination to the selection of ink color and paper type.

The Appendix contains a bibliography for the Pentagram Press and Michael Tarachow compiled from OCLC listings.
