FSG Poetry Book Covers from the Archives

Lining the FSG hallways and conference rooms are copies of every book we've published. It's fun to take a break from present duties every now and then to skim the spines. We pulled a few of our poets' books from the last few decades to give you just a sample of the archive's breadth.

So surprised and happy to see this entry. All my life (I am 51) I have loved the FSG paperback cover designs. No other firm has produced anything like it.
