Dear Friends,

As a mission-driven, not-for-profit publisher, the University of Texas Press depends on the generosity of people who share our passion for groundbreaking scholarly work and illuminating general interest books. Over nearly seventy-five years, some of our most ambitious undertakings—from new book series like The Texas Bookshelf to beautifully produced books on the visual arts—have been made possible by enthusiastic supporters. We are so grateful for that support.

Book publishing, done well, is an expensive endeavor. At the University of Texas Press, we seek the very best manuscripts from authors who lead their fields, and we commit to developing these manuscripts into attractive books of lasting importance and disseminating them as widely as possible. Doing so requires a series of investments—in highly skilled staff, quality materials, and careful production. In each of these areas we are focused on excellence, and we believe that the results speak for themselves.

By clicking the button below and making a gift to UT Press, you will greatly assist us in continuing to fulfill our mission. Donations made in this way are available to us to answer the greatest needs of the day, whether that is absorbing the costs of color illustrations in an art history book or creating professional development opportunities for staff. If you would like to explore a more targeted use for your gift, we would welcome a conversation about your particular interests and goals.

With thanks,

Robert Devens
