The Nation - Food Issue
To the right is the cover for The Nation magazine's recent "Food For All" issue. I designed the lettering and Steven Brower did the cover layout. Inside the issue I did several illustrations and additional lettering as initial capitals. This was a great assignment to work on, and the articles included are all compelling. It was a special treat for me to do an illustration for a piece concerning Wendell Berry, one of my favorite poets, but also a very critical early figure in the sustainable agriculture movement. The piece shown above the cover illustrates a different article, by Dayo Olopade, "Green Shoots in New Orleans".
