In late spring, Aqua Books asked Julia Michaud to do a poster up for this year's Lansdowne Prize for Poetry Winner. Unlike event-specific posters, the Lansdowne posters were up permanently at the store.
Julia has done the majority of Aqua's posters, magnets, and logos...and so I was looking forward to seeing what she would do this year for me.
Since by this time Julia and I were deep into our collaboration on the JackPine chapbook How to Prepare for Flooding, it seemed natural that the poster would reflect that project.
Here's the final poster. It wasn't ultimately printed but that's not a huge surprise, given the upheaval at Aqua this summer.
