This introductory chapter discusses the Hogarth Press, the publishing company owned by Leonard and Virginia Woolf, first examining the birth and evolution of the Hogarth Press along with a number of other presses of the early twentieth century. It identifies 1922 as the turning point of the future of the Press and explains the rationale behind a focus on the outputs and the network of relationships surrounding the Press. The chapter then places the current study in terms of work conducted in the field of modernist publishing, specifically in terms of the modernist periodical, and finally discusses a network approach that can be used to study the modernist or small press.
