The Cover

http://www.nightwoodeditions.com/title/TransmitterandReceiver

Well, here’s what the cover looks like. It was designed by Carleton Wilson (see more of his book covers here) who does a lot of Nightwood’s covers. His great design work was definitely one of the things that made Nightwood Editions appealing to me when I was looking around for a home for the book.

There was a a fair bit of back and forth before we got to this final image. It would be interesting to show the progression, but I’ll save it for another time. Anyway, I really like this image. At first I didn’t think I wanted something so directly related to the title but I really have a fondness for those old antennae. We had them on our houses back in Dubai and they always seemed like weird magical objects. Which is what a book is, too.

While I’m here I’ll note that the page for my book is up at the Nightwood site. Check it out.
