About the UNT Press

The University of North Texas Press was founded in 1987 and published its first book in 1989. Though we are the newest university press in North Texas (following SMU Press and TCU Press), we have quickly become a leading press with the most titles in print and published (approximately 20-25 each year). We are fully accredited members of the Association of University Presses. Our books are distributed and marketed nationally and internationally through the Texas A&M University Press Consortium.
