Corona Productions originated in "Eclipse '79," an interdisciplinary conference held at Montana State University-Bozeman in February of 1979. Located on the lower edge of the path of totality, Bozeman became, for three days, home to a gathering of artists, scientists, philosophers, historians, business people, and uncatagorizable others seeking common ground through the experience of one of the most dramatic of natural events.

Out of this event emerged Corona, a journal of arts and ideas which is available in four print volumes and as a "box of wonders" or "cabinet of curiosities."

To view samples from the box and to read the "letter to the reader." Another key project from Corona Productions is My Book & Heart Shall Never Part, a film about the role played by children's primers and pamphlets in the getting of literacy in America.
