Just realizing I never posted the cover design I had talked about a few times below, based on one of Joe Brainard's.
The Sonnets by Sandra Simonds is coming out next month (Nov) from Bloof Books. Here is the cover we chose:
And it is inspired by this design by Joe Brainard, for Ted Berrigan's The Sonnets:
|Joe Brainard: Cover for Ted Berrigan's The Sonnets|
Gouache, 13 x 10, 1964
When we revealed the cover, a few people recognized the reference right away, and there's a note inside the book too. (Sandra has written about how sonnets are always copies, of the form itself and of their well known precedent examples, so this concept and the other ones we discarded all had to do with copying, including some photocopied backgrounds, etc.)
