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.

In The Lovecraft Museum

This is a novella I did for PS by Steve Rasnic Tem, with cover art by Jason Van Hollander and interior ornaments by Jason McKittrick (converted to graphics by Jason Van Hollander from photographs of McKittrick’s three-dimensional objects). This was the first book I designed and laid out using InDesign, after many years using Quark XPress.

You can purchase the signed or unsigned edition here.
