ANTHEM STUDIES IN BOOK HISTORY, PUBLISHING AND PRINT CULTURE


The series publishes original, high-quality research in all areas relating to the history of the book, publishing and the book trade, copyright and cultural policy, reading practices, the circulation of print media, and digital and screen media and their wider impact. We have a special interest in studies of modern print cultures, in postcolonial and transnational contexts, and in intersections between book history/print culture studies and cultural/media studies.
