Welcome to The Modernist Archives Publishing Project (MAPP). This resource, currently under construction, is an international collaborative project that creates and presents research on twentieth-century publishing in order to promote new ways of organizing, interacting with, and using historical information about book culture. We are currently working on the technical and conceptual development of MAPP. The official launch will take place in June of 2017 at the International Virginia Woolf Conference hosted at the University of Reading.

As part of the centenary celebrations of the Hogarth Press taking place around the Annual Virginia Woolf conference at the University of Reading this year, we are inviting letterpress artists and printers to submit works on paper relating to the broad theme of ‘Virginia Woolf and the Hogarth Press At 100’.

Works may respond to a variety of themes including:

– hand-press and letterpress work in the first machine-age

– publishing in wartime

– art as therapy

– women’s writing

– modernist printing

– the author as publisher

– the book arts and aesthetics of the Hogarth Press

Deadline 5 May 2017.

Single sheet works may be submitted on any sized paper.

Artist’s name and any contributing designers, imprint, the location of press and other printing details may be included on the print.

Artists are encouraged to share work, in progress or complete, via social media: please tag @UoRHogarthAt100 and use the hashtag #HogarthPress100 #woolf2017

You might wonder what these three names have in common.  For MAPP, quite a lot. It was widely reported last fall that Sarah Jessica Parker, former star of the HBO hit Sex in the City, and now widely known by her initials SJP, has been commissioned an editorial director of an eponymous series within the Hogarth imprint. Random House resurrected The Hogarth Press imprint in 2012 in homage to the Woolfs’ publishing house.
