Synopses & Reviews
The OpenBook Series highlights Ooligan Press's commitment to transparency on our road toward sustainable publishing. We believe that disclosing the impacts of the choices we make will not only help us avoid unintentional greenwashing, but also serve to educate those who are unfamiliar with the choices available to printers and publishers. Efforts to produce this series as sustainably as possible focus on paper and ink sources, design strategies, efficient and safe manufacturing methods, innovative printing technologies, supporting local and regional companies, and corporate responsibility of our contractors. All titles in the OpenBook series will have the OpenBook logo on the front cover and a corresponding OpenBook Environmental Audit inside, which includes a calculated paper impact from the Environmental Defense Fund.

About the Author
The first edition of Classroom Publishing was written in 1992 by Laurie King and Dennis Stovall. In 2001 Dennis Stovall founded Ooligan Press, the premier student-run publishing house in the United States, and he relied on the concepts of Classroom Publishing when designing the curriculum and structure of the master's in publishing program at Portland State University. As a project from the classroom, the second edition was written and produced by the students of Ooligan Press.
