Sunday Salon is a prose reading series and online magazine based in New York City. Sunday Salon publishes a digital magazine several times a year featuring new prose and poetry from upcoming and established writers. The Salon editors chose a single word, usually influenced by current events, to highlight the theme of each issue. I design each cover to illustrate that one word theme.
The “Melt” theme was chosen during the intense the summer heat wave in 2008. The typography illustrates the cooling effect that prose can have on a hot summer day.
