And here it is… the cover for thew new Going Down Swinging #33, by stellar design duo Santangelo + Hall. The cover features a pantone-colorised image based on a solar system map from a 1961 atlas – the very same book featured in Cate Kennedy’s commissioned story. The ’33’ masthead is die-cut from the cover, revealing the deep blues and yellows of deep space beneath, as printed on the cover of the spoken word CD.

You can have yours on Sunday September 2, at our Melbourne Writers Festival launch.
