Peans to papa

Fathers: A Collection of Poems, edited by David Ray and Judy Ray.
Design by Carin Goldberg.
Photography by John Morrison.

It's hard to illustrate an anthology, especially one which could differ so tonally, but Carin Goldberg manages both to suggest nostalgia and celebration with this cover. The dusted images (made even more antique by a matte finish) look back to a past which may never have existed even as the colorful squares suggest a playfulness which is carried over to the bright colors in which the names are set on the back ad. The spine continues the color treatment as the title is set horizontally amidst swatches of patterned colors. A beautiful package overall.
