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.

United Artists Books has published numerous books, some 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 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.
United Artists Books 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, Andrei Codrescu described United Artists Books "on the cutting edge of American poetry for the last twenty years. The series of books is indispensable for any library collection or anyone interested in the future of poetry."

We continue our publishing projects and welcome your support and input.
