An Arrow’s Flight

An Arrow’s Flight

St. Martin’s Press, New York, New York, 1998

Description

In this novel, Mark Merlis magically blends ancient headlines with modern myth. The jacket combines them visually, with contemporary figures cleverly sharing the space with ancient Greeks in a classic motif inspired by early Greek vases. The two-color graphic simplicity and homoerotic narratives of those ancient vessels combines modern sensibilities with historical significance. Color, paper stock, and type choice contribute to the intent of the overall design.
