Lucky 13: Apogee Press

August 2013


This spring, Apogee Press, a Berkeley, California-based press specializing in modern poetry, celebrated 13 years in the publishing business. I am proud of this milestone because our studio has been serving as the designer of their books for as many years. When Apogee’s first title, Speed Life, was published in 1999, it occupied a place of pride among the small stack of books in my portfolio. Since then, the work I have produced for Apogee has expanded to fill out the entire shelf of a bookcase. Looking at the colorful spines and covers of these books, I reflect that I have indeed been lucky to collaborate with Apogee’s publisher, as well as a diverse group of authors, artists, and poets. More at:
