SHARP News is developing a new division for writing about book history pedagogy. SHARP in the Classroom will provide tools for teaching book history as well as reflections on pedagogical practices and reviews of resources.

As SHARP president Shef Rogers states in his welcome letter, SHARP News has historically been a stimulating resource for book history reviews, updates, and bibliographies. We want to ensure this website continues and expands this tradition by becoming a thriving space for community and scholarly research. Toward that goal, we’re thrilled to announce that we have just hired a new team of editors to revitalize and bring forth new voices and ideas to our community. Join us at SHARP in Focus on Monday, June 15 (10pm Central Europe / 4pm Eastern / 1pm Pacific) for our coffeehouse to hear more about the future of SHARP News!
Covering magazine publishing from Grub Street until the recent past, Howard Cox and Simon Mowatt have produced a magisterial account of the industry. Throughout this study, the focus is on consumer magazines and the publishing companies that bring them to market. The result is a book that manages to weave together the various technical innovations, magazine launches, labour disputes, and corporate takeovers into an enthralling narrative that takes readers from the small print shops and jobbing journalists of the hand-press era right up to the emergence of the iPad.
