Staring out the window at leaf bare trees, snow and ice, and grey skies threatening more accumulation to come, the cover of New Letters brought some much needed warmth of color to my day. "The Books of Common Prayer" by Margaret Brommelsiek is a hand-pieced collage, digitally scanned for archival printing.
Transference is the annual publication of the Department of World Languages and Literatures at Western Michigan University and is available in print and online for free downloading. This year's cover features Leticia R. Bajuyo's "Wow and Flutter: Noiseless" - an installment of player piano roll paper, typewriter, metal, and table (2012; photo by Darrell Kincer).
Stunning for its visual composition, The Literary Review (TLR) fall 2014 issue, "Women's Studies: Not by the book," features Achim Thode's 1972 photograph of German visual artist Rebecca Horn, White Body Fan.
