Natalie Butz ‘12 explored whether eBooks have rendered print books obsolete and also took on the task of publishing her own work.

For my Cater project, I went through the complete process of making a physical book so I would have the knowledge necessary to answer the broader question of how changing technology is going to affect the publishing industry. Although I only received my grant this past December, this is a project which I have been researching for quite a long time. I’ve always had a vested interest in this topic, both as someone who wants to make their career in publishing, and as a writer. Publishing a collection of short stories not only gave me the opportunity to see my work in print, but gave me a print publishing experience and let me see what the process of creating a book was.
