CAA, in a nutshell
A roundup of what came out of the University of Minnesota Press's time at the College Art Association conference this month:
-Our top 3 most popular books at this very busy, well-attended conference were: Suzanne Lacy: Spaces Between, by Sharon Irish; String, Felt, Thread, by Elissa Auther; and Modernism after Wagner by Juliet Koss.
-We hosted a nice, lively booth book signing with Sharon Irish (at left, background) and artist Suzanne Lacy (foreground). Prior to this event, we spoke with Irish about her experiences with Suzanne Lacy while writing this book; find the text of that conversation here.
-Another hit at the conference was Matthew Biro's The Dada Cyborg, which was a finalist for the 2010 Charles Rufus Morey Book Award. (Read our Q&A with Biro here.)
-A reporter for the CAA blog stopped by the trade show and interviewed our eloquent sales coordinator Erik Anderson about the overall interest in UMP's recent rush of art and architecture books, and about his personal experiences in publishing.
