The Quill and Quire had five designers pick their five favourite covers of the year and guess who made two
out of the five? Goose Lane Editions was chosen for Sharps by Stevie Howell, cover design by Julie Scriver.
Designer Kate Hargreaves says she, “instantly fell for the striking minimalism of the design.”
Another one of our wonderful publishers, McGill-Queen’s University Press was chosen for the striking
cover of their Spring 2015 catalogue, designed by David Drummond. Designer David A. Gee gets
pretty excited commenting on how difficult it is to design an original catalogue cover and his reaction
to this one, “Then you see this sly yet completely fucking obvious solution to the same brief you’ve read year
after year and yell, “Drum-mond!” while pumping your fist in the air and feeling like a complete hack. (Or is
it just me that does this?) That’s a great feeling, and this is a great cover.”
