Poet, installation artist and gallerist Thomas A. Clark started the Moschatel Press in 1973 with artist Laurie Clark to publish books "as imaginative space, the page [acting] as a framing device or as quiet around an image or a phrase, the turning of pages as revelation or delay".  Though older productions are museum-worthy, new productions continue to be issued from the Scottish press. From his poetry to his blog to his alternative maps, everything Clark does speaks with a calm beauty both quietly pastoral and thoroughly modern. It's a mixture the Scots seem to do very well.
