#UPWeek Day 4: Throwback Thursday

We’re heading into the homestretch of University Press Week 2014 and today’s theme is a look back with Throwback Thursday.


Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 11.18.06 AMHarvard University Press: “Late last year we made roughly 3,000 previously unavailable backlist works available again. They go back as far as the late 1800s. While prepping the data, we kept a running list of titles that were really showing their age. Our post will share some of the more ridiculous ones.”

MIT Press: A look back at former MIT Press designer Muriel Cooper. She designed MIT Press’s iconic colophon 50 years ago in 1964.

Temple University Press: A post describing the development of our influential Asian History and Culture series.

University of Washington Press: A look at the recently reissued series of Asian American classics, with an emphasis on cover design then and now.

Wesleyan University Press: This Throwback Thursday selection is “Flowers of the Foothills & Mountain Valleys” from Alice Notley’s 2006 collection Grave of Light: New and Selected Poems, 1970-2005. The cover of her book Grave of Light is a reproduction of a beautiful collage created by Notley.
