I know, AWP16 is so #LastWeek.
Want to mention a few more design finds. Two publishers caught my eye because of their great cover programs.
Open Letter Books has a wonderful set of covers, all made with simple illustration type and color. Have to admire the creativity there. Open Letter is a literary translation press out of Rochester University. Ann Zylicz is the designer of at least some of those books.
Broken River Books had a table of great book covers playing off of vintage cover design, often in a weathered grungy treatment.
Finally, some striking broadsides caught my eye and led me to conversation with Doncarlos Price about Public Pool. PublicPool.org “One Space for All Poets” has a dynamic visual presence, announces a future podcast and takes video submission along with written submission. Take a look.
