Lauck: Warm Center, Ragged Edge

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

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.
