Preparation of a digital publication analyzing 17th-century English books that were assembled from texts and images of other printed sources.

Cut/Copy/Paste narrates a new history of the book in early modern England. It does so by examining the bespoke publishing practices of three fringe communities spanning the seventeenth century. These largely forgotten projects resist familiar categories, slipping between the cracks of disciplines; later institutions like the British Library did not know how to catalogue these books. Yet, brought back together here, their scattered remains bear witness to the myriad ways marginalized groups negotiated the restrictive, chaotic media landscapes of the Renaissance. Cut/Copy/Paste stitches together the lives and afterlives of these bespoke publishing projects. It is a hybrid print/digital book, being staged on the Manifold Scholarship platform of University of Minnesota Press. This proposal requests funding to build out and complete the book’s digital components, which include a series of visualizations, datasets, and guided tours through the primary case studies.
