in this issue

general news

Welcome to the March/April issue of Bluelines!

Out of concern for the health, safety, and well-being of our staff, and in response to a statewide order closing all non-life-sustaining businesses, the PSU Press warehouse has suspended operations until further notice. Click here to learn more about our response to the Covid-19 crisis.

Many of our books are available as e-books or through print on demand; scroll down to see some of our favorite new releases that are available for purchase now. You can also sign up via the “Learn More” link on any of our book pages to be notified when our warehouse operations resume and print books are ready to ship.

Stay healthy!

call for comics for a covid-19 anthology

For those of us who look to comics as a way to think things through in times of uncertainty, to comprehend, and to empathize, we have begun planning the publication of a curated anthology of COVID-19 comics for release in early 2021, when we’ll launch the Graphic Mundi imprint of Penn State University Press. Learn more here.

virtual exhibits & events

We’re disappointed not to visit with you at our usual conferences this spring. Instead, we’ve created virtual exhibits where you can browse the titles we’d have brought with us, and learn how to contact the editors with your book proposal. See the full list here.
