Incunabula was originally active during the years 1992-1996, during which time they published three books and one broadside: They Fly at Çiron by Samuel R. Delany (July 1993); Antiquities: Seven Stories by John Crowley (October 1993), short-listed for the 1994 World Fantasy Award for Best Collection; "Solutions to Everything" by Michael Ventura (10 September 1994); and Atlantis: Three Tales by Samuel R. Delany (July 1995). Çiron and Antiquities were both published in trade editions of 1,000 copies and limited editions of 77 signed, numbered, hand-bound copies. The Ventura broadside was published in a private edition of approximately 200 copies on the occasion of the marriage of Penny Deerfield and John Vik (about half the copies were distributed as a gift from the bride and groom to their guests); it carries a publisher's acknowledgement explicitly requesting that copies be given and received freely and without the exchange of money. Atlantis was published in a single limited edition of 334 signed, numbered copies; Incunabula also produced a trade edition of Atlantis for Wesleyan University Press.
They Fly at Çiron was designed and composited by the well-known explicator of publication- and design-related software programs, Olav Martin Kvern; all subsequent Incunabula titles were designed and composited or are slated to be designed and composited by the multiple award-winning book designer, John D. Berry.
After a hiatus of nearly a decade, the company is active again, preparing for the subscription-based publication in Summer 2008 of a museum-quality 25th anniversary edition of John Crowley's classic 1981 novel, Little, Big.
