Schrödinger’s Wife (and other possibilities)

Schrödinger's Wife (and other possibilities)

by  Pippa Goldschmidt
MIT Press / Goldsmiths Press
Paperback, 248pp.

The stories in Schrödinger’s Wife (and other possibilities) travel through laboratories, observatories, rockets, hotel rooms, hospitals, out to the Antarctic and into outer space, following the trails of women scientists, technicians, patients, doctors and spouses in their encounters with some of the most extraordinary aspects of modern science.

The book cover plays on the infamous scientist Schrödinger and his many-words interpretation of quantum mechanics. His wife, the undervalued protagonist of the title story, imagines her own alternative lives.

The Headland

The Headland

by Abi Curtis
MIT Press / Goldsmiths Press
Paperback, 248 pp.

A dual narrative set in Dungeness in the aftermath of the great storm of 1987 and the not-far future. Dolores develops an intimate emotional relationship with a creature she finds washed up in a piece of driftwood. Decades later Morgan tries to unravel the mysteries of his mother’s past, but to do so he must come to terms with his own origins. The Headland challenges ideas about love and grief, parenthood and belonging, and the very fabric of time.

The book cover evokes a unique sense of place, the weight of grief, the strike of a sudden life-changing event and the bonds of parenthood.

This Is Not A Feminism Textbook

This Is Not A Feminism Textbook

edited by Catherine Rottenberg
Goldsmiths Press / MIT Press
Paperback, 160pp & 27 illustrations.

Written by prominent feminist scholars from around the world, This Is Not A Feminism Textbook offers a clear, straightforward overview of key feminist debates and concerns ranging from motherhood, home, work and family to media, technology, and medicine. It is engaging and accessible, distilling the highest level of knowledge into fascinating but concise entries.

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.
