Print for Victory is the first in-depth study of the role of British publishing from 1939 to 1945, an aspect of World War II print culture that other books have not covered in any detail. Frequently thought of as a barren interlude between waves of Modernism stunted by war and austerity—with paper rationing playing a crucial role—this period in the business of literature was also marked by innovation in book design, changes in the patterns of trade, and the birth of a wave of readers both inside and outside of the United Kingdom. This is the time when Penguin became hugely profitable—and when a surprising number of shiploads of books were exported to a growing international audience. Print for Victory explores the pivotal role played by publishers in relations between the government and its people, shedding light on the intervention by wartime ministries at all stages of book production, and eventually assessing the extent to which the war affected the corpus and quality of the literature that was published. This fascinating period has been intensively studied by social and political historians but has remained virtually untouched by historians of the book until now—and this readerly and appealing volume is sure to make its mark on the history of twentieth-century print culture. , hardcover, Label: British Library, British Library, Product group: Book, Published: 2008-07-15, Studio: British Library, Sales rank: 4863778
