Besides work by Graves and Riding, the Seizin Press published works by Gertrude Stein, Len Lye, Honor Wyatt and James Reeves. It ceased on the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War; during the 1980s, a "New Seizin Press" was operated by an acquaintance of Graves.[4]

Seizin Press Vero is owned and operated by the Laura (Riding) Jackson Foundation located in Vero Beach, Fl. The first volume "Decades" represents poetry by leading American poets who have participated in the Foundation's annual "Poetry & Barbecue." https://www.LRJF.org.
