Lit Mag Covers :: Picks of the Week

Tin House‘s summer reading issue is a beautiful oil on canvas painting by Jocelyn Hobbie titled Forsythia. Dig it? View more of her work on her website.


If you’re not afraid of bears, PULP Literature‘s latest cover will make you question if perhaps you should be. A mutant, robotic bear stands out first, and all you can see of the dark army of bears behind it are their red dotted eyes. The work is by JJ Lee, and he also has another illustration inside the issue to accompany his writing “Built to Love.”


Vallum‘s cover is a drive-in movie of sorts. It may be hard to see on the screen, but there are a bunch of matchbox cars lined up in front of an old television. I loved it even more when I read the title of the piece: “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” by Andrew B. Myers.
