This cover of Room is a pastel on vellum by Cathy Daley. “Since the mid-1990s when I began the current body of work known as the dress series or dancing legs,” she writes, “my drawings have been untitled. Because I was so depicting the body and gestures of the body I wanted the work to speak through the body and a title seemed limiting. The postures and gestures in the work create meaning for the viewer through cultural associations and subjectivities.”
The cover of Hunger Mountain‘s Winter 2013/2014 issue is by Lucinda Bliss with details from Atlas of American War Book 4: Hearts and Octopus with graphite and colored pencil on found paper.
