Cover Design

This book contains extracts from 33 chapbooks published over 7 years. The book is a culmination, a celebration, and an archive. The original chapbooks are delicate and fugitive, so the publisher wanted this to be more formal-feeling and long-lasting. The tactile cloth cover is durable and lends a timeless feel, while the blue/gold colourway is regal and crepuscular. The embossed illustration is a reference to the series logo, a coffee ring. The subtitle, úrval (‘selection’) connects the name of the chapbook series with that of the publisher, which formed through the series. A simple loose sheet tucked between the back cover and the plastic wrap includes a blurb and barcode.
