Notes: "Almost 20 years ago, while Dion O'Donnol's press still lacked a name, a friend unknowingly provided one when he mentioned he thought O'Donnol's announced plans for the publishing of poetry sounded like hitching a wagon to a star. Wallace Cook made the pressmark. With it is sometimes combined his personal mark, a device influenced by a story of India of a blue bee imprisoned in a lotus." © James Lamar Weygand. Note: Arthur F. Faulconer is also listed as being with the press. Rae, T. & Handley-Taylor. The Book of the Private Press. Greenock: The Signet Press, 1958, p. 37.
