Amy C. King: Come on Shore...

Designer info to come. Though I love the images and desaturated color, the type here is awesome. The font is simple and looks like it belongs on the sign of highway diner far far away. I almost approve of the excessive tracking on the second and third lines - even though it looks a bit messy, it works with the rugged, dirty font and title.

This is a memoir of the author's marriage to a Maori man in New Zealand. It pits their relationship - that of a privileged white woman with a rural native - to the history of the colonists and the Maori.

love it, but the all caps "ANDS" hurts me.

I agree. They're a little odd. Maybe if they were U/l and not so close to the other type.

I like it a lot. Who's the publisher? And where'd you find such a hi-res version? Amazing.

Pub is Bloomsbury. This is from their website.
