The genealogy of a cover design

by E GONE

I am happy to announce that my forthcoming album All the Suns of the Earth got the green light from Deep Water Acres, a label that feels a little bit like home since they released Behold A New Traveler back in 2010. Some details are still to be resolved but the release will hopefully be sometime during the summer.

I’ve been working on the cover design again these past couple of days, utilising my Swedish typewriter from the sixties quite a bit.

Trivia: in fact this classic cover was also key when I designed the book cover for an anthology about suicidal writers (text in Swedish) back in 2008:
