The Art & Culture of Book Covers
BY GREG LILLY
@ VOL 12
ON MAY 23, 2015
Do you judge a book by its cover? It's okay, most everyone does. That's why publishers put so much into book cover design. As both a publisher and an author, Greg Lilly tries to find that perfect balance between just enough to interest you, and too much clutter to pick it up.

"Deus Ex Machina," "Hliehhan," "The Book," and Me
BY JIM JENKINS
@ VOL 4
ON AUG 11, 2016
Commissioned by the Aurora (Illinois) Public Library to produce a piece of public sculpture that illustrates the intersection of art and technology, James G. Jenkins produced three distinct yet related works of art: an outdoor public sculpture, an indoor “time machine / desk,” and a large medieval manuscript-like, artist-made book of collages. The latter work, which the artist describes as “graphplotfictionfacttotems,” illustrates the journey of creation, fabrication, and installation of the artworks at the library. It is an intentional, repetitiously redundant, self-referential echo.
