June 2, 2014The Missouri Blue Book is Available for Purchase!

The 2013-2014 Missouri Official Manual (Blue Book) is available for ordering. The 1,536-page, hardback book costs $24.99 per copy, plus shipping charges.  Click here to order the Missouri Official Manual today!

For more than 100 years, the State of Missouri published the Official Manual as a hardback book, then discontinued publication after the 2009-2010 edition. A statute passed by the Missouri General Assembly in 2013, allows a not-for-profit organization to return the book to hardback form.

The book contains detailed information on local, state and federal government, as well as stories, essays and pictures that help preserve the state's heritage.

Questions may be directed to the Missouri Press Foundation at 573-449-4167.
