Best New Poets and Its New Cover Arrive on Shelves

This year, Atomicdust ventured further into the world of book cover design with Best New Poets, an annual anthology of 50 emerging writers. The book’s new cover template was designed to make the series more recognizable and cohesive, and we’re pleased to share that it can now be seen on a bookstore shelf near you, just in time for the holidays.

If you’d like to see the book in person or pick up a copy of your very own, we hope to see you at Subterranean Books in the Loop this Wednesday, December 11 at 6:30 p.m. In celebration of the release, Subterranean will host a short reading and signing with four of this year’s selected poets: John James, Lo Kwa Mei-en, Justin Runge and Benjamin Sutton. View the Facebook event for more information, or stop by the Best New Poets site to learn more about the project.

UPDATE: Atomicdust’s book cover design for Best New Poets was featured among the “Best Graphic Design of 2013” by the design blog From Up North.
