Cover Page
This month’s cover image is a letterpress broadside commissioned for Deeper Than Swords: Celebrating the Work of George R. R. Martin, an exhibition mounted at Cushing Memorial Library & Archives at Texas A&M University. The poster was printed at Anise Press using wood and metal type, and is part of a suite of four designs highlighting quotations from Martin’s fantasy cycle, A Song of Ice and Fire.

Displayed in the exhibition with other artwork, including original drawings and multimedia pieces, the broadsides emphasize the literary preoccupations of Martin’s work by visualizing his aphorisms about the power of language. Learn more about the exhibition and the library’s Martin collection in this issue.
