Andie Silva specializes in early modern British literature and history of the book. She earned her PhD. from Wayne State University (Detroit, MI) in 2014. Dr. Silva is currently working on a database that aims to catalog and facilitate research on paratexts from the early modern book trade. She has presented her work at national forums such as the Renaissance Society of America, the Sixteenth Century Society Conference, and the Shakespeare Association of America. Her monograph, The Brand of Print: Marketing Paratexts in the Early English Book Trade (Brill, 2019) traces envoys to the reader, visual design in title pages and tables of contents, and patron dedications, illustrating how the agents of print branded their markets by crafting relationships with readers and articulating the value of their labor in an increasingly competitive trade.
