Raymond's Quiet Press

This is the dedication of The Pleasure Book, “Dedicated to King Ton and Queen Elizabeth”.  They were King and Queen of Atenveldt 40 years ago.  40 years ago.  This month we want to look back at some of that history and how the Quiet Press came to be.  The need I had to share knowledge, the need to improve the SCA, the need to provide a service to the SCA, no one else had provided.  

The Pleasure Book was a guide to the SCA.  40 years ago, there was no internet, there was no corpus of shared knowledge handed down from knight to squire.  The Pleasure Book provided information on how to participate in the SCA without having to travel sometimes hundreds of miles to seek out a mentor.  That is the way the SCA was when I started.  We would travel from Albuquerque to Phoenix and seek out information.  The Pleasure Book helped other people learn from articles written by a group of authors willing to share their knowledge.

This book was the start of Raymond’s Quiet Press and 40 years later our focus has changed over the years but the name remains the same - Raymond’s Quiet Press
