An Annotated GuideBook - 1992
Small Press is an annotated guide to the sources for the study of the literary small press, focusing on small press publishing since 1960 when the Mimeo Revolution occurred allowing small presses in the United States to flourish in unprecedented numbers. The guide provides a selected enumeration of sources from 1960 to 1992 about the small press phenomenon, its constituent small presses and little magazines, and its cultural and commercial significance.
The volume first examines sources of current information, such as directories, indexes, guides, and trade journals. It then reviews sources on the cultural and business activities of the small press. In the end, it provides a beginning base of core secondary materials essential to librarians, scholars, book collectors, and anyone working in the field of the small press.
