In honour of Charlotte Gill’s recent nomination for the Charles Taylor prize for literary non-fiction and in anticipation of her upcoming reading at Project Space on the 28th, I thought I’d post these two versions of the cover for the issue that first featured Eating Dirt. For whatever reason, we decided against them but they do have their merits. I think the first one was nixed because I felt the pose seemed forced and the seedling too strategically placed in the glove. And if I recall correctly, the second didn’t seem to have enough overall front and centre power. In any case, we hope you enjoy them. I’ll post some more alternate covers in the coming months.
