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. The cover pantone is repeated throughout the book in text and image. Biblical scans round out the design and point to #33’s nickname as The Jesus Issue. You can have yours on Sunday September 2, at our Melbourne Writers Festival launch.

We’re taking Going Down Swinging on the road to the Newstead Short Story Tattoo in country Victoria. GDS contributors Eric Dando, Libbie Chellew, Melissa Howard and Jonathon Lawrence will be reading for us on Saturday, May 2nd from the brunching hour of 11am. Hit the road, pick up a pastry and start your day right. Newstead Short Story Tattoo is an arts-music-storytelling event held over one weekend in Newstead, fifteen minutes out of Castlemaine. As the official ‘fringe events’ activity for Clunes Booktown, it’s not to be missed.
