"Countryman Twitters Its Catalog
Countryman Press has placed its Fall catalog on Twitter—140 characters at a time. Pluses=green; way early; Minuses=no pictures; not very enticing.

Harper Drops Print Catalogs
While we’re on the subject of publisher catalogs, here’s another announcement—HarperCollins will be dropping its print catalogs for Fall. They will place their catalogs online at their website. HarperCollins is also one of a group of publishers working on development of an interactive catalog system to be called Edelweiss. That should save a lot of trees."
