New book interior, a collection by a writer I like a lot, who I was fortunate to have as introducer to my novel, The Painting and the City. Pages shown are from one of the first stories of his that I read. Available from the publisher here. Cover and interior art by Derek Ford.
Final installment of the award-winning series from Undertow Publications. Available for purchase here.
Both From TCU, and both kind of oily (fracking and a cult novel about the early Texas oil business).
This is the first book for a new client, Texas Christian University Press, a novel, Girls of the Golden West, by James Ward Lee. I designed both jacket and interior.
Page design and layout for the University of Iowa Press, Jon K. Lauck, From Warm Center To Ragged Edge: The Erosion Of Midwestern Literary And Historical Regionalism, 1920–1965. The text was fairly straightforward, but half the book was an endnote chapter. Because there were so many notes (and presumably important), I had to balance readability with keeping them from taking up too many pages.
Shadows and Tall Trees, Vol. 7 came out a few months ago, from Undertow Publications. It’s an anthology of new short fiction. I did interior design and layout.
Vince Haig did the swell cover art and typography. My wife, Rebecca Kuder, has a story in it. Because this is my blog and I can do what I want, I used her story for a sample of story opener and story spread. Please go order a copy of the book here.
