Passages North‘s 2014 cover is simple but effective. It’s done by Jennifer Burton of Vermont: “Her work draws on imagery from old photographs found in family albums, both her own and those of others.”
Okay, this cover of Frogpond looks so tasty that I could lick it, seriously, but not really. It certainly says, “Hey, it’s a hot summer day. Open me up; it’ll be refreshing.” The design and photo is by Christopher Patchel of Mettawa, IL.
The cover illustration for Sterling‘s latest issue is done by Bill Frenec, but, unfortunately, that’s all we know about it. It is, however, an excellent homage to Minneapolis—the unofficial theme of the issue—including the iconic Spoonbridge and Cherry. (Plus some awesome buttons featuring elements of the cover art.)
