Book Arts Studio
The Tampa Book Arts Studio includes a working letterpress printshop with equipment from the 19th and early 20th centuries. The Book Arts Studio Library Collections
are centered on the age of letterpress printing, with a special emphasis on private and independent presses; examples from more than 500 presses are represented. The collection now totals nearly 8,000 items, including the Lee J. Harrer Collection of Books about Books, the J. B. Dobkin Peter Pauper Press Collection, the Dobkin Collection of 19th Century Letter Writing Manuals, and the Les Feller Family Collections.
The University of Tampa Press extends the educational mission of the University through the publication of works of scholarship, creativity, and regional interest. Its publications disseminate the fruits of learning to a wide audience of serious readers both within and beyond the academic institution.
Authors have included Nobel Prize and Pulitzer Prize winners, notable state and regional authors and artists, widely-published alumnae, UT faculty members and many new or emerging authors.
Published twice a year as a limited-edition hardback, the Tampa Review
is the University's award-winning international literary journal, featuring art, stories, interviews, poetry, and creative nonfiction from across the state and around the world.
Edited by faculty members from the Department of English and Writing, the Tampa Review
helps host visiting writers on campus and sponsors the international Tampa Review Prize for Poetry each year.
A reviewer for www.NewPages.com
