Small Press Publications

The Small Press Collection consists of works issued by publishers who traditionally promote new and original creative writing, irrespective of mass-market trends. Correspondingly, these publications are often produced in small limited editions. UCI’s Small Press collection is decidedly literary and is particularly strong in American poetry and presses from the 1960s onward.

Fine press and artists' books, which are related but different genres, are described in different sections of this site.
