We just finished printing and binding a number of pre-publication review copies of Marly Youmans' epic poem Thaliad. It was so nice to see the Marly's words, Clive Hicks-Jenkins' illustrations and Elizabeth Adams' design working together on printed pages -- rather than the computer screen -- that we wanted to give you a peek inside too. Thaliad is scheduled for release in early November.
For a more intimate look at the process and a few more photos, please visit the editor's personal blog, The Cassandra Pages.

Right now, the cover of Thaliad, Marly Youmans' book-length, narrative poem, is beginning to take shape through the mind, eye, and hands of the extraordinary Welsh artist Clive Hicks-Jenkins, who generously agreed to take on this project. In a series of posts on his own Artlog, Clive describes and illustrates the process of envisioning and creating the cover art, and I wanted to share this very exciting process with you as it unfolds.
"Marly Youman’s epic poem Thaliad, is to be published later this year by Phoenicia Publishing, Montreal. It is a work of staggering beauty and imagination, and I’m enormously proud to have been asked by the author and her publisher, Elizabeth Adams, to create the image that will speak for it on the cover."
