The Gold Diggers

From Alastair Johnston's interview with Creeley on Divers Press:
"I remember trying to reproduce the drawing for the cover of The Gold Diggers, which has the drawing of Laubi├Ęs'. There's a red background, the red kept bleeding through, but they overprinted at least twice. They went through these incredible efforts and they charged us virtually nothing. Extremely sweet. Their shop was down from the central plaza, going along the sea wall. There was a beautiful prospect. They used to keep the back door of the shop open to get this lovely breeze. Extremely good natured. They were extraordinarily patient."
This book is as beautiful as the view outside the printshop. I love paperbacks with the French fold. The design is as tight and compact as the short stories themselves.
