"First, a word about Oxford University Press. Here is a publishing house that, like a shotgun with an open-bore pattern, sprays out a great many — often good and/or useful — books about wildly varied subjects without a lot in the way of promotion, marketing, or publicity. Its recent releases include From the Closet to the Altar, about same-sex marriage (nice title); H. P. Lovecraft: The Classic Horror Stories; Beyond “A Love Supreme”: John Coltrane and the Legacy of an Album; and, more prosaically, Measures for Clinical Practice and Research, Volume 1, Fifth Edition. Its backlist is as various as it is enormous — befitting a publishing enterprise that began in the fifteenth century. There are odd ducks quacking all over the Oxford catalog, past and present, and here is one of the currently loudest and most compelling of the species.”

We’re so chuffed about this lovely reflection on our publishing, and are sharing ANOTHER picture of our lovely ducks as a thank you (you can never have to many, right?).
