Cover song Written on January 20, 2012, by Zack.
The final piece of the puzzle before I head to London for my class’s gallery show at Foyles Bookstore. For the book cover, I wanted to strike a vintage chord without going too far overboard. I’m no Saul Bass. More of a Saul Guppy. I also wanted to introduce Melvin himself, give a sense of [...]
