SPICOLI IS DEAD: Ryan Field’s stunning photos of stunning boards made by an assortment of brilliant craftsmen made the cover of the MIT press Fall catalog. Photos from our Mingei book, Surf Craft.
So the “Surf Craft” book I mentioned is being published by MIT Press. As a publisher, MIT Press will be distributing and marketing the book, and we just received news they wanted to use Surf Craft for the cover of their fall catalog. Um, hell yeah.

Taken from the MIT Press website and their history:
The MIT Press is the only university press in the United States whose list is based in science and technology. This does not mean that science and engineering are all we publish, but it does mean that we are committed to the edges and frontiers of the world—to exploring new fields and new modes of inquiry.
