Kelly Blair: The Nightingales of Troy
A collection of short stories tracking four generations of women in Troy, NY. I love the simplicity of representing the women as diferent colors of the same clip-art. The book tracks the rise and decline of the town with some gritty characters, and perhaps that is what prompted the do-it-yourself look. Paperback coming in July from Norton, printed on Mohawk Via Felt paper. Thanks for the heads up, Albert!

pretty and unusual. Curious to see how many covers out there use birds like this. It seems like there is a bundle.
Kelly's work is amazing. This one was done for WW Norton I believe, the art direction she's provided for Melville House is stunning too.
Thanks for sharing.
it's funny how all versions of this cover that I know use a sort of tape-up or paste up treatment... must be something in the story...
makes me :)
