« "Deep Denim" [by Star Black] | Main | Reb Livingston Presents a Poem by Shane McCrae »

May 15, 2010


No way any of this stuff would have been so much fun without you, Charlie. Long may we collaborate! xo

Thank you for this fantastic post -- and for the wonderful work you did on "Jim and Dave Defeat the Masked Man." (I know Jim Cummins feels as I do about the design of the book and Archie's pictures. We lucked out all the way.) You made excellent covers for LIT, and your high regard for the immensely talented Shanna Compton mirrors my own. Also, I can't tell you how much I admire the hypothetical covers project. I'm glad to be a part of it.

I've always thought many small presses and publishers could do so much more with poetry book covers. Man, there are some stinkers out there! Bad fonts, bad colors, bad design. These covers are pretty decent, but if I were to publish a book of poetry with a publisher, I would want to oversee the design.
