Spring 2013 catalogue available for download


nsb-2013-1-spring-catalogue-3DsNew Star’s Spring 2013 cat­a­logue, list­ing forth­com­ing and recent books, has been post­ed to the New Star web­site and is avail­able for down­load­ing and view­ing here. It won’t be print­ed out and mailed, as in the past; we phased our print cat­a­logue out in 2011. High­light­ing our Spring ’13 list:

  • Mac-Pap: Mem­oir of a Cana­di­an in the Span­ish Civ­il War, by Ronald Liv­ersedge. Liversedge’s account of his time as a sol­dier in the Macken­zie-Pap­ineau Bat­tal­ion fell vic­tim to pub­lish­ing pol­i­tics and nev­er saw light of day when it was writ­ten in the 1960s. A key source for oth­er books about the role Cana­di­ans played in the Span­ish Civ­il War, it is now pub­lished for the first time.

The cat­a­logue was pro­duced (like our web­site) with the tech­ni­cal assis­tance of Ray­ola Cre­ative and Clint Hutzu­lak, who also pro­vid­ed the cov­er design and the French-style cov­er place­hold­ers for the new books (while the actu­al cov­ers are being for­mu­lat­ed in the Secret Lab­o­ra­to­ry). How­ev­er, Clint is in no way respon­si­ble for the klood­gy, print-era aspects of the e-cat­a­logue. In fact, he is urg­ing cer­tain enhance­ments to take full advan­tage of the bound­less con­straints of the e-for­mat, enhance­ments we expect to be rolling out in future iter­a­tions of the cat­a­logue.
