Scribe to launch new media series

Melbourne-based publisher Scribe will launch a new series of nonfiction books about contemporary media trends later this year.

The ‘Media Chronicles’ series will launch with The New Front Page: New Media and the Rise of the Audience by blogger Tim Dunlop in September, followed by Stop Press: The Last Days of Newspapers by newspaper journalist Rachel Buchanan in October. A third book by columnist and author Nicholas Stuart will be published in early 2014. The books all feature a similar cover design with bold colour over a background of newspaper print.

‘The series idea seemed natural to me when I saw the need for a number of first-person accounts about the dramatic changes underway in the mass media,’ Scribe publisher Henry Rosenbloom told Books+Publishing. ‘It’s obvious to me that we’re witnessing profound changes in the media and I felt that Scribe was ideally placed to provide a platform for well-informed testimonies about those changes.’
