Borderland Books


Illustrations commissioned by Borderland Books.
Richard Quinney, the publisher at Borderland Books, invited me to create artwork for the cover and chapter heads of Glenway Wescott's book GOODBYE, WISCONSIN. Borderland re-published the book. Madison designer Ken Crocker designed the book. It had been out of print since the mid 1960s. It is a collection of 11 short stories that focus one way or another on Wisconsin and the midwest. I was surprised to find that these stories, all written by Wescott in the 1920s, are a bit on the dark side.

This book is mentioned in The New York Review of Books, February 12, 2009.
