Welcome to Day 4 of the University Press Week blog tour! The theme for today’s post is Throwback Thursday. We’re featuring a few of our surprising journal issue covers from the past several years. Some of our favorites include a cover of boundary 2 featuring Mickey Mouse, a Radical History Review cover that teaches us the real key to making money, and an issue of the Journal of Middle East Women’s Studies that will make you do a double-take. Do you have a favorite that we didn’t include? Let us know in the comments!
