The book jacket is the last thing in a long and complex process of making a book at Gaspereau Press. The cover’s image is the result of a lot of creative thought and effort, a collaboration among artists.

Wesley Bates’ engraved wood block sits nestled in the press, awaiting the handmade paper that will be the final step.
