Brown to edit new series on book studies

The University of Iowa Press announces a new monograph series dedicated to book studies.

IMPRESSIONS: STUDIES IN THE ART, CULTURE, AND FUTURE OF BOOKS

In our moment of media shift, both book history and the book arts are especially well-poised to investigate text-making, to understand its past, comprehend its present, and navigate its future. The Impressions series invites works with practice, whether digitally oriented or hand based, as their focus. It seeks writing that critically eyes the cultural contexts and trade economies shaping book practice as well as writing that carefully appreciates the active ways in which a maker's choices remake culture.

Series editor: Matthew P. Brown, University of Iowa
