75th Anniversary of the Founding of the Scripps College Press

The 75th Anniversary of the Founding of the Scripps College Press will be held on Saturday, March 5, 2016. It will be an all-day event with quite a few speakers, such as Sumner Stone, Steve Matteson, David Godine, Valerie Lester and others, and Scripps Librarian Judy Harvey Sahak, Prof. Kitty Maryatt and Prof. Jeff Groves, and former students of the Scripps College Press such as Robin Price. The details of the event will be forthcoming when finalized. We hope that you will put the event on your calendar and plan to spend a celebratory day at Scripps College in Claremont, California.


Latest Book: Power Trip (2015 Spring)

Everyone has love/hate experiences with automobiles, especially in sprawling Los Angeles. Since the students who created this edition are from many parts of the world, they decided to share their perspectives on the advantages and disadvantages of owning, driving, crashing, modifying, and caring for cars, both old and brand new. They drew upon the materiality and physicality of vehicles for inspiration.

The students who produced the book are: Melanie Biles, Lizzy Freedman, Genna Kules, Sherman Lam, Kai McDaniel, Allison Mis, Vivian Pham, and Niyati Shenoy. The size is 8” tall x 6.75” wide x 1” thick and has 107 pages. The book was produced in an edition of 102 copies. The price of the book is $200 plus applicable sales tax.
