Great Cover Art

Our first online event on Wednesday 24th February, 12pm, will explore great cover art throughout Meanjin's history in a panel discussion.

Author and former Meanjin editor Sophie Cunningham, book designer and artist WH Chong, art historian Christopher Marshall and design expert Daniel Huppatz will talk us through the changing styles of the covers of one of Australia’s oldest literary journals, examining how they reflect the forming Australian
national and artistic identity over time. This free Zoom event will be chaired by Meanjin editor Jonathan Green.

The discussion is the first in a series of events commemorating Meanjin’s 80th anniversary. Videos of the events will be available online following the panel discussion.
