After many months of gestating, the new cover design for the new Going Down Swinging No. 35 is here. The anthology – a book and a spoken word album – will be launched in Melbourne on November 29. In the meantime, we can reveal it will look like this.

The cover is the work of design studio Holiday, who also designed and typeset the book. It’s printed on 330GSM card with a gatefold front and back doubling the width. The front panel features two die-cuts, with the images printed on the internal fold. Swing illustration is by Europa.

The book itself is on newsprint with full-colour plates of Darren Song‘s commissioned artworks, involving embroidering over spreads from previous Going Down Swinging editions.
