Liverpool University Press, founded in 1899, is the third oldest university press in England after Oxford University Press and Cambridge University Press. In 2012 it was shortlisted for the award of IPG Academic and Professional Publisher of the Year, and was shortlisted again this year (2013).

LUP specialises in languages and literatures, history and visual culture. It has rapidly expanded since 2004 and now publishes approximately 50 books and 56 journal issues across 20 journals every year. All LUP books are distributed in North America by University of Chicago Press, the largest US university press.

In a distinguished and long history, LUP has published the work of Nobel prize winners, art historians such as E.H. Gombrich, leading literary critics including Hermione Lee, and major political figures such as Lord David Owen. The poet Lascelles Abercrombie was formerly Press Secretary. LUP also enjoys ongoing collaborations with Tate, FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology), the Bluecoat, the Public Monuments and Sculpture Association and National Museums Liverpool. Among LUP’s flagship journals, the Bulletin of Hispanic Studies has been published continually from Liverpool since 1923 and Town Planning Review celebrated its centenary in 2010.
