American artist Kay Rosen leads us offshore with her illustrations for this volume of the following stories, all about the sea:
John Moore: Local Boy Makes Good
Katherine Mansfield: The Voyage
Stephen Crane: The Open Boat
Isabella Bird: The Hawaiian Archipelago, Letter I

Eileen Myles: Everyday Barf

Kay Rosen has been exploring the possibilities of words as images for over 25 years. She delights in the small shift; the subtle change that subverts meaning and reveals the unexpected.

Four Corners Books is an independent publishing house, founded in 2007 by Elinor Jansz and Richard Embray. For their Familiars series, Four Corners commission artists to produce new illustrated editions of classic novels. By 'smuggling' contemporary art into the Classics sections of bookshops, Jansz and Emray hope that art can be brought to new audiences at affordable prices. Four Corners collaborate with artists working in different media and at different stages of their careers. Sometimes an artist's approach to their commissioned text is respectful, even celebratory, and sometimes it is subversive. In each case, designer John Morgan works closely with the artist to ensure that their approach to the text is reflected in the format and layout of the book.
