Last update: January 2018
Thanks for visiting. Latest project is the new Esgazette album, released at the end of last year. You can hear it on the music site if you are so inclined.
This site began in 1997, constructed as a portfolio for the art and music projects of Will Datson. The title was invented a long time ago as a little joke attached to handmade books and it never went away. The Underwater Press is based in Scotland.
Compact Chronicles is the intermittent Underwater Press blog. Don't expect current affairs or relevant commentary.
The Esgazette website - This is the site of the very persistent band and music project Esgazette.
FernFelix is the managed site that presents artwork and projects by other artists. Not always active but there nonetheless.
Here is a short profile of Will Datson. More info...
