In 1948 the Themersons started a publishing company, Gaberbocchus Press, whose aim was to produce 'best lookers' rather than 'best sellers'. The name Gaberbocchus comes from Lewis Carroll's Jabberwock in a latinized version by his uncle, Hassard Dogdson. During the 31 years that the Themersons ran the press 60 titles were published. These included the first translation of Jarry's Ubu Roi; Jankel Adler; the English writings of Kurt Schwitters and Raoul Hausmann; first translation of Raymond Queneau's 'untranslatable' Exercices de Style; Dietrich Grabbe; Anatol Stern's first Polish futurist poem, Europa; and the then completely unknown Pol-Dives. Among other authors were Hugo Manning, Bertrand Russell, C.H. Sisson, Eugene Walter, Stevie Smith, George Buchanan, Kenneth Tynan, James Laughlin, Henri Chopin, David Miller and Cozette de Charmoy. The list included several novels by Stefan Themerson; the Semantic Poetry which he invented; his writings on ethics, and an opera; and two books of Franciszka Themerson's drawings. The Themersons were guided by the principle that the design of each book should be an expression of its content.
