This Is Not A Science Fiction Textbook

edited by Mark Bould & Steven Shaviro
Goldsmiths Press / MIT Press
Paperback, 168pp.

This Is Not A Science Fiction Textbook brings together leading sf scholars, including some of the most exciting new critical voices, to introduce the genre for the general reader. A vital bridge between technoscience and culture, it is an early warning system, a method for imagining differently, and a way of experiencing our increasingly science-fictional world. It is the vernacular of the 21st century.

I was brought on board to clean up and standardise initial designs, tailoring what had been created to what the authors had provided. The series style developed under my art direction: a little-bit-punk with a rough-and-ready, old school, photo-copied aesthetic — that still maintained a clear and accessible hierarchy of information.

A Critical Glossary

Goldsmiths Press / MIT Press
Paperback, 248pp.

Goldsmith Press’s PERC series seeks to refresh political economy, in the original sense of the term, as a pluralist and critical approach to the study of capitalism. In doing so it challenges the sense of economics as a discipline, separate from the other social sciences, aiming instead to combine economic knowledge with various other disciplinary approaches.

The cover design connects the volatility of economic systems with the social unrest that leads to street riots and broken shop windows.

A Physical Education

by Jonathan Taylor
Goldsmiths Press / MIT Press
Paperback, 248pp.

Intermingling memoir with literary criticism, philosophy and sociology, A Physical Education is a highly original examination of the uses and abuses of power in the education system. It explores how bullying and discipline function, how they differ from each other, and how they all-too-often overlap.

The book cover uses the author’s own childhood imagery to suggest the fragmentation and pain that occurs when bullies target an individual.
