Virginia Woolf and the World of Books will examine Leonard and Virginia Woolf’s Hogarth Press as a key intervention in modernist and women’s writing and mark its importance to independent publishing, bookselling, and print culture at large. The research in this volume coincides with the centenary of the founding of Hogarth Press in 1917, thus making a timely addition to scholarship on the Woolfs and print culture.
