The collection includes articles from 2000-2012 which are housed in 118 document boxes, 5 oversize folders, 11 oversize boxes and 2 custom boxes. Check it out: “The records of McSweeney’s document the evolution of a startup quarterly literary journal into a highly influential small publishing house and creator of several serials, including Timothy McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern and the Believer, and a growing catalog of titles under its many book imprints. The bulk of the archive comprises mock-ups, dummies, art, and proofs used to produce McSweeney’s publications.”
