The Scripps College Press has been making collaborative student books for thirty years, publishing one edition each semester for a total of sixty editions. This new bibliography includes all the books produced by the students in the Typography and the Book Arts class, devoting four pages to each book and showing several photos of each. The accompanying text by Kitty Maryatt tells fascinating stories about the making of the books. Selections of the students' intelligent and varied writings are included in each section.
The book includes a brief history of the press and descriptive information about the printing process, as well as bibliographical and descriptive information about each of the the sixty works published by the press from 1986-2016, and lists of Goudy lecturers and institutions with standing orders. Color illustrations throughout.
A special addition to this second printing of 100 copies is a DVD with the documentary "Thinking Out Loud: Making Books at the Scripps College Press." In this 49-minute video, we hear directly from the students about the process of developing a collaborative vision for the edition. Two books are highlighted: Ruminations and Good Data/Bad Data.. An 8-minute version was produced for the 75th Anniversary of the Founding of the Scripps College Press, and is included.
