Ration Books


Ration Books took shape in 2019 by the author Ben Myers and his faithful hound Cally.

They both considered that words change with their setting. 

To deny this is to deny the changing tastes of the same apple when scrumped, sliced, peeled or eaten straight from the tree. 


Words depend on their delivery, their format. 

Words can be concentrated. 

Words can be loose.

Ration Books is born out of a love of routine and simplicity. 

Conceiving an idea and acting upon it all in good time. 

Good reading should be rationed. 

The reason for reading is rational. 

Ration Books produce small books to be read in short sittings. 

They feature fiction and poetry and other ideas. 

They fit in haversack pockets. 

The books are available to buy online only in short print runs. 

They will not be numbered or signed by the author. 

They are affordable, disposable, swappable, collectable, and always readable. 

They contain words written in a manner that requires concentration and dedication.  

The words will never appear on screen. 

Pass it on.
