Jon Steiner’s short stories are unsettling but often laugh-out-loud funny. A reviewer wrote that this collection “manages to articulate last night’s forgotten dreams.” I used collage to convey a sense of Jon’s distinctive voice on the cover and scattered throughout the collection. Each collage features a photograph of Jon with his head obscured in some way (understandably, he didn’t want himself recognisable throughout his book). The other illustrative elements are drawn from key themes or ideas from the stories – close readers/viewers will be rewarded with graphic jokes. The book is published using a print-on-demand service, so I had to work around very limited production options.
