Elemental Disappearances by Jason Mohaghegh and Dejan Lukić came out today from tiny collections (an imprint of punctum). I designed the interior and the cover. It's a collection of paragraph-long theoretically-inflected essays that are each connected to an image. A curious little book that rewards exploring, and one where I feel like I did a good job marrying form and content.
Photography in the Middle by Rob Coley and Dean Lockwood was published today from punctum. I designed the cover based on a series of photos by Eadweard Muybridge.
The first book by punctum's newest imprint, tiny collections, came out today. Walk on the Beach is a collection of photos, drawings, and essays that were gathered at and around an event held by the Material Collective at the 2014 BABEL Conference. I designed the interior and the cover (and the logo for the press!).
Murder Ballads by David John Brennan came out today from punctum. I designed the interior and the cover, based on a section of the first edition of Lyrical Ballads. The book is a very creative work of criticism, mixing scholarly writing with short poetic plays, novelistic scenes, and other modes in order to get at the question of authorship in Lyrical Ballads. The interior design reflects this salmagundi approach, with sections in a very modern style and other sections straight from the 1798 rulebook.
Why the Center Can't Hold by Tom O'Neill was published today by punctum. I designed the cover and the interior.
Object Oriented Environs, edited by Jeffrey Jerome Cohen and Julian Yates, was published today by punctum. I designed the cover and interior.
How We Write, edited by Suzanne Conklin Akbari, was published today by punctum books. It's a collection of essays by scholars at various points in their careers on their various and quirky writing processes. It's the first book that I acquired and developed with punctum, and I think it came out very well. The drawing on the cover is a detail of a piece by Yvonne Wiegers.
