“Thirteen New Beginnings”, UTS Writers Anthology 1988. Cover design by Penelope Richardson

Blast from the past

On the occasion of the publishing of the 25th anthology, a month or so ago I got a blast from the past, an email from a student at the University of Technology Sydney who was working on the “25th UTS Writers Anthology”, asking if they could publish this image which was the cover of one of the early editions of the anthology. The original layout was in high-key colours.

In the early days of computer aided design I created this book cover design on a little Apple Macintosh II and printed the layout to a dot-matrix printer and then indicated the colour separation by hand to the printer. Oh how things have changed. And these days my hand-eye coordination is a lot better when using the mouse!
