COVER LOVERS #4

Changing My Mind by Zadie Smith

Cover Lovers #4
Changing My Mind by Zadie Smith

The Cover: British novelist Zadie Smith meets UK leading illustrator Si Scott. What else is there to say besides… Brilliant. 
P.s. Mini Q&A with Si about his book cover design for Zadie.

The Book: If you love her fiction, you will enjoy the fact that Smith’s voice is just as funny, insightful, unaffected and wise in her non-fiction essays. In this, which covers everything from the joys of reading Nabokov to Italian cinema, from the conditions of life in Liberia to her own relationship with her family and father, the reader gets to know aspects of her as a person, not merely as an author. It is instantly clear that she is not merely a dazzling writer, but an incredible human being, as well as a fine journalist and reviewer.

COVER LOVERS #3

The Kingdom of Ohio

Cover Lovers #3
The Kingdom of Ohio by Matthew Flaming

The Cover: Typography caught our eye with this gothic-esque design. An elegant black cover accompanied with a timely medieval font. But what sent us head over heels in love with this book was the spot UV treatment used on the typeface as well as the decorative ornament border stamped in gold foil. This cover made us feel many things… especially the urge to go out and buy a pocket watch. 

The Book: The Kingdom of Ohiois a fast paced adventure that incorporates both science fiction and historical fiction. It is a story about high ideals, social responsibility, Hugh Everett’s theory of Relative State Formulation, love, and the human condition. Flaming engages the reader with fascinating characters, creative scenarios, and footnotes that spark a flurry of research into US history.

SURGERY7 ONLINE STORE IS NOW LIVE!

We know we’ve been quiet (a little too quiet even for our own liking) on the social networking front but we have a good reason. Promise!

We’ve been getting emails coming in over the last couple of months from people showing their love & interest in our posters from the We Heart Poster Art series - and of course it has not gone unnoticed.

While working away with our day to day tasks, we’ve put aside some time to get some printing done. And if you don’t already know this about us, we LOVE print! We especially love print when all those fresh and crisp sheets of paper that comes through the other end of the printer are for YOU!

"For me?" 
YES! YOU!

Because along side the printing, we’ve also been building a little online goodness. Online goodness that comes installed with the buttons “add to card” & “checkout”.

Uh huh.. That’s right gang! We are sooper-dooper thrilled to announce THE SURGERY7 ONLINE STORE IS NOW LIVE! How exciting is that?! Oh, we know.. We can’t stop rolling around on our chairs either!

Whether separately or as an entire series, you’ll be able to purchase the posters from the S7SHOP! We feel that if we can fill an empty space on your wall with something printed & pretty, then we’ve done our job :)

We’d like to thank you all who have shown interest in our work and above all, who have supported us & shown us love. You totally make it amazing! *interweb group hug!

All the heart in the world,
S7x
