Salamander Hill Design, Athelstan, Quebec, 2003

Description

The title refers to a bamboo birdcage. The cover’s understated design contrasts with the lushness of the birds in the jungle seen through the die cut.

Juror Notes

“This cover was first overlooked because of its subtle design. It wasn’t until further inspection that the beautiful use of the special effect/die-cut was revealed. How successfully it works—the rich bird artwork adds so much and connects you to the interior.” Isabel Warren-Lynch
“A delicate and intricate graphic cover realization from the Joseph Cornell school of design.” Jack Woody
