The Voynich manuscript
edited by Raymond Clemens ; with an introduction by Deborah Harkness
New Haven : Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library in association with Yale University Press, [2016]
Introduction / Deborah Harkness -- Preface / Raymond Clemens -- The Voynich Manuscript -- Earliest owners / René Zandbergen -- Voynich the Buyer / Arnold Hunt -- Physical findings / Paula Zyats [and five others] -- Cryptographic attempts / William Sherman -- Alchemical traditions /Jennifer M. Rampling -- The world's most mysterious manuscript / Raymond Clemens -- Chronology -- Contributors -- Acknowledgements -- Index.

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the "Voynich Manuscript," the world's most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book's language has eluded decipherment, and its elaborate illustrations remain as baffling as they are beautiful. For the first time, this facsimile, complete with elaborate folding sections, allows readers to explore this enigma in all its stunning detail, from its one-of-a-kind "Voynichese" text to its illustrations of otherworldly plants, unfamiliar constellations, and naked women swimming though fantastical tubes and green baths. The essays that accompany the manuscript explain what we have learned about this work--from alchemical, cryptographic, forensic, and historical perspectives--but they provide few definitive answers. Instead, as New York Times best-selling author Deborah Harkness says in her introduction, the book "invites the reader to join us at the heart of the mystery."

Publishing subversive texts in Elizabeth England and the Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth' offers recent research in book history by analysing the impact of early modern censorship on book circulation and information exchange in Elizabethan England and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. In fourteen articles, the various aspects of early modern subversive publishing and impact of censorship on the intellectual and cultural exchange in both England and Poland-Lithuania are thoroughly discussed. 0The book is divided into three main parts. In the first part, the presence and impact of British recusants in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth are discussed. Part two deals with subversive publishing and its role on the intellectual culture of the Elizabethan Settlement. Part three deals with the impact of national censorship laws on book circulation to the Continent.

Track changes : a literary history of word processing
Kirschenbaum, Matthew G., author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 2016
It is known -- Word processing as a literary subject -- Perfect -- Around 1981 -- North of Boston -- Signposts -- Typing on glass -- Unseen hands -- Think tape -- Reveal codes -- What remains -- After word processing.

"The story of writing in the digital age is every bit as messy as the ink-stained rags that littered the floor of Gutenberg's print shop or the hot molten lead of the linotype machine. During the period of the pivotal growth and widespread adoption of word processing as a writing technology, some authors embraced it as a marvel while others decried it as the death of literature. The product of years of archival research and numerous interviews conducted by the author, Track Changes is the first literary history of word processing. Matthew Kirschenbaum examines how the interests and ideals of creative authorship came to coexist with the computer revolution. Who were the first adopters? What kind of anxieties did they share? Was word processing perceived as just a better typewriter or something more? How did it change our understanding of writing? Track Changes balances the stories of individual writers with a consideration of how the seemingly ineffable act of writing is always grounded in particular instruments and media, from quills to keyboards. Along the way, we discover the candidates for the first novel written on a word processor, explore the surprisingly varied reasons why writers of both popular and serious literature adopted the technology, trace the spread of new metaphors and ideas from word processing in fiction and poetry, and consider the fate of literary scholarship and memory in an era when the final remnants of authorship may consist of folders on a hard drive or documents in the cloud."--Provided by publisher.

Type is beautiful : the story of fifty remarkable fonts
Loxley, Simon, author
Oxford : Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, 2016
This book traces the history of fifty remarkable fonts. Thoroughly researched and visually exciting, it takes readers through the story of each fonts creation and distinct characteristics, as well as why it succeeded or failed. Some of the fonts were commissioned for major commercial or cultural projects.Other fonts became culturally significant unintentionally. This book gives readers an unforgettable cast of characters, including Johannes Gutenberg, William Caslon, Nicolas Jenson, Stanley Morison, William Morris, and Thomas Cobden-Sanderson, the English artist and bookbinder who famously “bequeathed” the unique metal type created for his failed Doves Press to the Thames, casting the type into the river to prevent its future use.

Modernism's print cultures
Hammill, Faye, author
London : Bloomsbury Academic, [2016]
Introduction -- Sensuous print -- Print in circulation -- Purposeful print -- Conclusion.

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.
