3 Fields Books


An Imprint of the University of Illinois Press

Dedicated to titles about the Prairie State and Midwest, 3 Fields Books evokes a landscape of endless vistas that inspire reflection and the three campuses of the University of Illinois. These books explore the culture, place, and people around us while contributing to conversations that connect the campuses, state, and region with the broader world. Those of us who live here experience an amazing wealth of regional history, food, and travel. With 3 Fields Books, we tell the human stories behind the music, arts, natural history, technological experimentation, religious diversity, and progressive thought that define Illinois and the Midwest. These books continue the longstanding commitment to regional voices that make the University of Illinois Press a cultural pillar of our diverse and vibrant region.
