This scene is all too common in campus bookstores across the country: students dismayed at the high cost of textbooks. Understandably, students don’t see the value of a product that has increased in price at twice the rate of inflation over the last 20 years. It doesn’t have to be this way. A textbook can be interesting, informative, and affordable.
Allison D. Smith and Fountainhead Press have teamed up to publish Signs: A Grammar Handbook, a low-cost, student-friendly grammar handbook. By focusing on essentials and eliminating wasteful content, such as unused and unwanted support material, we have created a quality textbook that costs half that of comparable offerings.
