Ninth Letter




Ninth Letter is an award winning literary arts journal designed and produced at UIUC under creative director, Matt Peterson. It features fiction, nonfiction, poetry, photography, and design work from some of the best contemporary writers and artists.


VOL. 9 NO. 1

I interviewed the incredibly talented painter and professor Laurie Hogin for the Art Feature, as well as typesetting throughout the book and laying out the modular type section.


VOL. 9 NO. 2

I created several intricate geometric patterns for the inside cover, bastard title, table of contents, and various other places throughout the book. I also typeset stories and poetry.
