Dear Modernists,

We are sending below a CFP seeking biographies of Hogarth Press authors, workers and illustrators and pieces on other Modernist presses to include (with credit) in the Modernist Archives Publishing Project/MAPP.  We recently launched the first phase of the project at www.modernistarchives.com<http://www.modernistarchives.com/>. You can find lots of Hogarth Press dust jackets, author photos, newly-digitized archival correspondence, and other gems there. We are looking forward to further collaboration with everyone on this resource and are also very much open to feedback and correction as we get this big project going!

Please see our recently published book for background on building the resource:
Claire Battershill, Helen Southworth, Alice Staveley, Michael Widner, Elizabeth Willson Gordon, and Nicola Wilson.  Scholarly Adventures in Digital Humanities: Making the Modernist Archives Publishing Project.  Palgrave New Directions in Book History series, 2017.

Full CFP is below! Please always feel free to write to us, too, if you have questions or suggestions.

With all best wishes,

Helen Southworth and Claire Battershill
