The Press
Sunnyoutside was founded as an online literary journal by Publisher David McNamara in Seattle, Washington in November of 2000. In the autumn of 2004, desiring to return to the print medium, plans were made to relaunch sunnyoutside as an independent press in Somerville, Massachusetts. After nearly a year of planning and preparations, our first sale was made on May 5, 2005, just preceding McNamara's graduation from Emerson College's Certificate in Publishing graduate program. In August 2007 the press relocated to Buffalo, New York.

We are members of the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses, the Fine Press Book Association, the Letterpress Guild of New England, and the Western New York Book Arts Collaborative, where McNamara serves on the advisory board.

Many of our titles have been purchased and archived by the University of Pittsburgh, the University at Buffalo, and Yale University. Most of our poetry titles are also archived at the Poets House (New York, New York).

Our books have been adopted for course study by Adelphi University, Carroll University, Kirtland Community College, Lakeland College, St. Johns University, and Widener University.

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
