Publicity Round Up

The Pecan: A History of America’s Native Nut by James McWilliams
It’s still hot here in Texas, and media coverage of our books doesn’t show any signs of cooling any time soon. This summer’s food books are still appetizing:
Our spring photography books maintain our good image:
  • Cathy Langer of Denver’s Tattered Cover bookstore talked to Photo District News about the quality of our photography books. In the August ‘Photo Book’ issue, Cathy says that she prefers to order from “university presses like Yale or the University of Texas Press, in part because she trusts the production quality of their books.” Pick up a copy of the magazine at your local independent bookstore>> 
  • Photos from Bruce Jackson’s Inside the Wire were featured on the website for the Italian magazine Internazionale. View the slideshow on>> 
  • The Boston Globe’s Ideas blog wrote about Bruce’s work in southern prisons. Read the post on>> 
  • Photography critic Vince Aletti reviewed Michael Kamber’s Photojournalists on War: “The book—required reading for anyone interested in the way news is gathered and disseminated these days—collects Kamber’s interviews with 39 colleagues who covered the war…confidences shared among friends that we’re privileged to be listening in on.” Pick up a copy of Photograph magazine at your local independent bookstore>>
And finally, the buzz over our forthcoming fall titles has begun!
