We began publishing books and printing etching folios in New York City, in 1978, initially as author & artist, then J.B.Gerald & J.Maas in New England and as Gerald and Maas in Ontario. We now live and work in Montreal. Aside from some of our own works we brought out René Tavernier in 1984, Albert Schweitzer in 1985, and in 1989 the U.N.'s Convention on Genocide with related U.N. texts when the Convention was out of print at the United Nations. Our Canadian edition, Common Rights & Expectations first appeared in paper print and online in 1996. Many of the books are made entirely in-house. Our current website nightslantern.ca has provided genocide warnings and suppressed news updates since 2001, as well as tributes to some of the long term political prisoners in North America. A catalogue of our books and artwork is available at chainlessway.
