Giving to the University of Illinois Press

Embarking on a second century of exceptional scholarly publishing

Commitment to Regional Pride and Accomplishments

The University of Illinois Press’s exemplary scholarly publication record is enhanced by our regional titles that explore the rich, fascinating history and culture of Illinois and the Midwest. The first book published by the Press was about Abraham Lincoln, and we continue a commitment to publishing titles in Lincoln studies that appeal to a broad audience. We are also proud of our role as publishing partner for the societies behind Journal of the Abraham Lincoln Association and Journal of the Illinois State Historical Society. Other regional highlights include our Heartland Foodways Series, titles on Chicago-land, natural history books, and a growing list of excellent guides for mushroom enthusiasts!
