* * *

If I were in a punny frame of mind, I'd say that it's been a banner few months for me, working life-wise.

But I'm NOT feeling particularly punny, so I'll just say that it's been an interesting exercize creating these banners for the University of Manitoba Press' website.

For many of the banners, I'm able to use the archival photos used in the books themselves. But some don't have photo sections and/or don't lend themselves to a particular visual concept.

Though I am not and will never be a designer, making images out of text (or around text) is an interesting reversal of my normal writing process, which is images to text, the world to the word.
