Dear followers and visitors,
Thank you for your continued support in 2015! With 13,079 views (and counting!) by over 3,500 individual visitors from a wide variety of countries in Europe, North and South America, Africa, Asia, and Australasia, we feel that we have truly achieved our goal of making book history and print culture research in the German-speaking area more visible and accessible to scholars all over the globe.
In 2015, we published 52 posts (excluding this one), which gives us an average of one post a week. Thank you to all of you who send us information and updates. We hope there will be even more posts in 2016! Please consider sending us information on new publications, projects, and job opportunities as well as book reviews, conference reports, and essays. In 2015, we were particularly pleased to inaugurate our open access series with an essay supplied by Tobias Winnerling and Kristina Hartfiel. Please feel free to contact the administrators at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to contribute to our blog. We also welcome feedback and recommendations.
In the meantime, however, we would like to thank you for your interest and encouragement and wish you happy holidays and all the best for a successful, healthy, and peaceful 2016.
Doris Lechner, Corinna Norrick-Rühl, Alexander Starre and Simone Zweifel (blog administrators)
P.S. For some extra holiday bookloving fun, we’d like to recommend this facsimile of the first edition of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”: https://archive.org/details/christmascarolin20dick
