For this edition of the Yale Literary Magazine, I adopted the theme of French air mail, both in aesthetic and form. Short stories, poems, a play, and original artwork were produced as individual pieces rather than bound together. All were contained in a large envelope (which also served as the table of contents). The epistolary theme was continued through the materials: some pieces were printed on laid paper, a common choice for fine stationery; others, on postcards. Verlag, the title typeface, hints at the classic “par avion” stamp, while the text typeface Archer suggests the language of a typewriter. 

Materials: print
Role: designer. All content, printing, and binding executed by others.
