Faye Hammill & Mark Hussey: Modernism’s Print Cultures

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.
