RISD press was a student newspaper published weekly in the early 1970s, a self-described attempt at consolidating into one digestible pile all the information outlets of the school, including the previous student newspaper, Montage. Beginning in September 1973, RISD press included the Brown Daily Herald’s weekly issue of Fresh Fruit as an insert. The issue of October 26, 1973 included an article about the Industrial Design faculty and projects they were working on. An art exhibit at Woods-Gerry by Carol and Michael Ashcraft was reviewed. An article about some additions to the Pilavin Collection at the RISD Museum of Art was also included. A recipe, letters to the editor, comics and events for RISD students were also mentioned.
