Cover design details:
5×8", spine size 0.621" (296 pp.).
Cover design features a photograph of mine of a tree in the winter, “Bacedasco Alto” (2014). The display typeface is MPT Dirty Ego, a reproduction of misprinted thick and heavy strokes from a crude sans serif (also used for headings). Tar’s signature was extracted from a letter to a friend dated 1988, and digitized in vector graphics for color application and expressive use.
