Other titles that suitably qualified editors might wish to propose are most welcome.  All titles are available from the English Department ($5 shipping within NZ; other locations at postage costs).  Having produced these titles digitally, we aim to keep them in print and orders are always welcome.

Script & Print

The quarterly research journal of the Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand, Script & Print is edited by Dr. Shef Rogers.  The journal publishes in all areas that form part of, or are related to, physical bibliography: the history of printing, publishing, bookselling, type founding, papermaking, bookbinding; palaeography and codicology; writing, editing and textual bibliography. No countries or periods are excluded. The interdisciplinary approach to these subjects is often described, collectively, as Book History or Print Cultures. Script & Print has only a marginal interest in the general field of reference bibliography, documentation and information retrieval.

For further information about the journal or the Bibliographical Society, please see the BSANZ website.
