Poetry chapbook with a moving “volvelle” wheel cover

Maura came to me with this awesome idea for a poetry chapbook she had written. She wanted a cover that the reader could interact with. By spinning the wheel, different drawings appear in the windows, showing all of the different things Maura’s interested in: pretty much everything!

Technical details:

Letterpress covers with hand-set lead type for the title & author’s name, and photopolymer letterpress printed drawings. Interior pages are laser-printed. The volvelle (wheel) covers were hand-cut and assembled and the book is sewn with linen thread.
