Thanks to The Biographer's Craft editor James M. Morris for the newsletter link that updates us on the progress and specs of Michael Burlingame's upcoming Lincoln biography project [seeing the photo, I wonder how often Burlingame gets "Sen. McCain, you've lost weight" when strolling around in public]. I am pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the price will be for this monster 2-vol. set. With extra notes and a wiki-type associated online version, the cross media aspects are interesting as well. Finally, the last two paragraphs of the article remind us of the indispensability of university presses.
