Gwask an Orlewen
. . .a new Cornish publisher.

We are happy to announce the launching at this year’s Gorseth of a new Cornish publisher. Gwask an Orlewen publish material in Cornish and other languages. Our aim is to produce attractive books at an affordable price. Altogether there are 8 books in our Launch List—yep, EIGHT!

We’ve placed an emphasis on creating books for children and learners, because these young people are clearly so important to the future of our Cornish language.

On the other hand, it’s also very important that more fluent Cornish speakers be able to read the treasury of older writings from the early Revival and before. So many of those works have become expensive, or hard to find—even though they’re part of the Cornish literary heritage of us all.

Just like Agan Tavas, Gwask an Orlewen supports every one of the historical forms of Cornish—Traditional Cornish and nothng else!

Our Cornish publications can be ordered today from Spyrys a Gernow’s stall at Gorseth 2010

Where does fascism come into this? It looks to me like a Baner Peran/compass rose amalgam with the arrow pointing west, which makes sense given the name of the publisher.

Have you a link to the symbol you're talking about? I can't find any French fascism symbol that remotely resembles it.

A new publisher for Cornish books! Just what's needed! Shame I can't attend the Gorsedd for its launch but, you know, the equines are calling - especially my new lady - and are rather hard to resist.

PS What is "yn-hwostoedh"? Can't find that in any dictionary.

Not only a new publisher for Cornish books. TRADITIONAL Cornish books! How excellent is that?

(Does Marhak prefer a day with the horses to a day at the Gorseth? Does the Pope chase choirboys?)

Who gives a sod who it is - these are books, in Cornish and in traditional Cornish. It's always being said that the "traditionalists" don't publish anything, well here's the answer. The critics can't have it both ways (although I'm sure you'd enjoy that, Steve).

I've been after a copy of Trystan hag Ysolt for years. Very hard to find, and if you do, the prices tend to be out of my league. Well done, Gwask an Orlewen - my order is with you. (And to see companion volumes with the text in both English and French is equally good - as Caradar translated his from the French). Also nice to discover that Caradar's spelling has been left alone.

The Gorseth yesterday in Porth Ya was delightful; the weather brightened up in the afternoon, and a couple of us watched the ceremonials from up on the rocky hill in the centre of the so-called Island (actually a promontary). The circle of bards and spectators below us was set against a backdrop of golden sand and aquamarine sea sparkling in the sunshine. It was magic! And An Bardh Mur spoke out strongly against the proposed gerrymandering of Kernow's historic boundaries by the Cons-ervative government: "The Tamar has been Kernow's border for a thousand years..."!)

Despite some last minute hiccups, Gwask an Orlewen -- henceforth GanO :o --had rather a successful launch. We'd no sooner laid out GanO's stock on the Spyrys a Gernow stall than our first customer bought a copy of 'Trystan hag Ysolt' by Caradar & Carer Brynyow and bore away her purchase with a big smile. By late afternoon, we only had a single book left, so Spyrys have been taking advance orders while awaiting their next delivery of stock from us.

All of GanO's books can be pre-ordered right now from Spyrys a Gernow:
http://www.AganTavas.com/dafar.html
(email: shoppa@spyrys.org )
...and from 20 Sept 2010, our online store will be fully stocked and open with our complete range of books.
http://www.GwaskAnOrlewen.com

In the meantime, however, we do have a few items available now, just so the place doesn't look so disappointingly empty to any visitors. There's a couple of small downloadable freebies, and a single book for sale (one that didn't quite make it into print in time for the Gorseth!).

Annoyingly though, the site seems to display prices only in $US at the moment; but if you click the 'Add to Basket' button, there's a menu at the bottom left of that page where you can switch to £GB or Euros, if you prefer.

One of the freebies is a (slightly updated) e-booklet of the publicity flyers we were handing out yesterday at St.Ives, containing our complete starting list of eight publications. So, if you couldn't make it on the day...why, this is almost as good as being there in the sunshine and sea breeze!

Gwask an Orlewen: update

Barring computer crashes, our on-line store will be opening to the public next Monday, 20 Sept 2010. All of the publications mentioned in our leaflet will be on sale there, but if you can't wait till then, you can order any of them right now from Spyrys a Gernow (contact details below). If you haven't seen our leaflet yet, or visited our store to download a copy, there's a list of all eight of those titles below.

In addition, we'll be starting a brand new series for youngsters and learners; these will be fun publications at Pocket-Money Prices ( ! ), in both printed and e-book formats. We hope to have 2 of them ready in a choice of either UC or SWF/T, but we're gonna launch with whatever's available on the day (and catch up with our good intentions dreckly!)
