Talk about reader interactivity. Biblioasis will publish John Metcalf’s latest memoir, Shut Up He Explained, this fall. And a reader of the Windsor publisher’s blog has designed the book’s cover.
It all began when Biblioasis posted some of its own early designs on its blog and asked for reader feedback. One reader, Brenda Schmidt, went one better and up and designed a cover herself, and Biblioasis owner Dan Wells liked it so much that he’s decided to go with it.
The total cost? Wells says Schmidt asked for only $8 and a one-year subscription to the Biblioasis-owned literary journal Canadian Notes & Queries.
