A History of Hurricanes

A title for Northwestern University Press.

This small book of poems came to me last year. The title of course brings particular imagery to mind so I made reference to hurricanes in an understated way. As the author said about the cover: "I think it fits the book perfectly, capturing its essence yet extending its implications in provocative new directions." (Emails like this make me happy).

Coincidentally, this cover was the last one I worked on before the birth of my daughter, so it stands out in the flood of work that came right before I took off for a couple months. Happily, the final cover came out beautifully when printed.

All beautiful. Really like the first one and third one. Sort of a Lustig aesthetic there that you don't see much of these days.

I assume the last one features a root formation...?

They're all very good. I particularly like the first one because of the tactile, weathered look behind the text.

These are beautiful. Nice work Kimberly.

thanks everyone. Not too bad being compared to Lustig's aestheic either...he's one of my favorites.
