Each APOSTROPHE book design, unique to each title, will emphasize typography as the only artful quality of the covers. We want to utilize the cover (front and back) as an extension of the manuscript instead of as the more typical intermediary face for the market (meaning simply: no cover art, no author photos, and no blurbs). This is not a new idea, we realize, but it is an idea we find compelling. We are not antagonistic to the concept of blurbs, photos, cover art—we just envision the book spilling over its covers—a last poem, a repetend, a fragment, a paratext. Of course, we know we are also building a product image.
