Description - Modernism's Print Cultures by Faye Hammill
The print culture of the early twentieth century has become a major area of interest in contemporary Modernist Studies. Modernism's Print Cultures surveys the explosion of scholarship in this field and provides an incisive, well-informed guide for students and scholars alike. Surveying the key critical work of recent decades, the book explores such topics as:
- Periodical publishing - from `little magazines' such as Rhythm to glossy publications such as Vanity Fair
- The material aspects of early twentieth-century publishing - small presses, typography, illustration and book design
- The circulation of modernist print artefacts through the book trade, libraries, book clubs and cafes
- Educational and political print initiatives
Including accounts of archival material available online, targeted lists of key further reading and a survey of new trends in the field, this is an essential guide to an important area in the study of modernist literature.
