New Book Day: Epoiesen 4

When the Digital Press was first starting out, Shawn Graham, the editor at a new journal, Epoiesen: A Journal for Creative Engagement in History and Archaeology reached out to the Digital Press and asked whether we might like to collaborate. He envisioned that the press would produce a paginated paper version of the journal which would publish regularly online. This offer of collaboration meant a good bit to The Digital Press early in its existence, and four years into this relationship, we’re excited to announce Epoiesen, volume 4, is now available. Don’t let its modest size mislead you. This issue is really strong and anchored…

New Book Day: Epoiesen 3

Three years ago, Shawn Graham approached me and asked me whether The Digital Press might be interested in publishing a paginated, print-on-demand version of his new digital journal Epoiesen.  Without hesitating, I said “yes!” And today, the third volume of Epoiesen appears as a downloadable PDF or as a print-on-demand book available on Amazon.  To celebrate the third volume of Epoiesen, I button-holed Shawn Graham for a seven-question interview about his new book, Failing Gloriously and Other Essays, Epoiesen, and his various other projects. You can read that interview here. Or you can read a bit more to find out more about Epoiesen! …

Laying Out Epoiesen

The semester is winding down and I’m working a bit now to catch up on some pressing tasks for The Digital Press. So, this week, I’m working on the layout for one of my more complex projects, Shawn Graham’s journal Epoiesen, for which The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota will publish an annual pdf and print-on-demand volume. The articles in Epoiesen have a number of intriguing challenges. First, Shawn provided them to me in markdown (and my impression is that they are submitted in markdown). I’ve been a John Gruber fan for a long time and regularly read DaringFireball and was…
