Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Covering covers this week! [by Phoebe Putnam]:


The ape cover reminds me of WWI propaganda posters.

I think one of the best cover designers in recent years is Tree Swenson. Unfortunately for the book arts, she has stopped designing in order to concentrate fully on the Academy of American Poets.

This is going to be really interesting, especially the Cease and Desist list (to which I would add Milton Avery's painting of two women on a sofa (can't think of the title). I like the painting but it has been on several book covers and in Woody Allen's Crimes and Misdemeanors. Enough already.


wd be great to have links to images or examples of tree swenson's work-- let me know if you find any good ones.

all best,

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
