United Artists Books Catalogue Orders About

United Artists Books (formerly Angel Hair Books) was founded in 1967. It is one of the oldest independent publishing companies in the United States that focuses primarily on publishing books of poetry.

During the last thirty years we have published numerous books, many of which are no longer in print. Among our authors are Robert Creeley, James Schuyler, Alice Notley, David Rosenberg, Ron Padgett, Charlotte Carter, Lorenzo Thomas, Tom Clark, Ted Berrigan, Bernadette Mayer, Bill Berkson, Hannah Weiner, Anne Waldman, John Wieners and Clark Coolidge.

Some of the artists who have contributed covers to United Artists / Angel Hair Books are Philip Guston, Joe Brainard, Donna Dennis, Alex Katz, James Rosenquist, George Schneeman, Amy Trachtenberg, Louise Hamlin, Jim Dine, Martha Diamond, Emilie Clark, Pamela Lawton, Rosemary Mayer, Sophia Warsh and Anne Tardos.
The press has received numerous grants and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, the Massachusetts Foundation for the Arts and the Coordinating Council of Literary Magazines. It has been our primary goal to publish poets whose works are well known and well-respected within the poetry community but unknown to a wider audience.

In an article in The Baltimore Sun a few years back, Andrei Codrescu described United Artists as a small press "on the cutting edge of American poetry for the last twenty years. The series of books by United Artists is indispensable for any library collection or anyone interested in the future of poetry."

We hope to continue our publishing projects and welcome your support.
