I'm looking for examples of well-known or iconic magazine sections.

Some magazines have regular features, pages or sections that they seem to be well-known by or that one would associate with that particular magazine. Examples might be Harper's Index, NYMag's Approval Matrix or even Glamour's Do's and Don'ts. Heck, the entire Vanities section of Vanity Fair is kind of like this. [more inside]

Limited edition books: Is a lower number from the same printing better?

I'm purchasing directly from the publisher one (of 500) of a limited, numbered edition of a book. The publisher has asked me to choose from the remaining available numbers (for example, to choose my specific book as it comes off the press from between 123-220, 432-468 and 481-499). Are lower numbers better, more valuable, sought after? [more inside]

How does one successfully publish biography?

Interacting with university presses at a huge conference to our mutual benefit

I'm an author, and I have a great job helping my fellow faculty members publish their books with university presses. Through this job I visit presses one-on-one sometimes, but that is expensive and involves major travel. A huge conference is coming up with 20 of our target presses in attendance, each at a booth. What is the best way to contact them pre-conference to arrange intelligent, mutually meaningful interaction? Should I write to the directors themselves, or is there a more grassroots way to poll university press staffs to get a feel for who wants to meet and discuss their take on scholarly publishing? And what's in this for them, other than the fact that my university is reasonably high on the prestige scale? Any other benefit to them?
