Fashion Designer Paul Smith Works on Granta Cover

Granta magazine worked with fashion designer Paul Smith to create the cover for its upcoming issue, Granta 119.

Dedicated to the theme of “Britain,” the issue will be released in the U.K. on May 10th and in the U.S. on May 17th.  Contributing writers include Adam Foulds, Mark Haddon, Robert Macfarlane and Rachel Seiffert.

In the release, Granta artistic director Michael Salu explained the cover: “Britain’s oldest literary magazine creating an issue on ‘home’ needed a package of distinction. Why not ask a revered British designer to collaborate on creating the cover for ‘Britain?’ We worked with Sir Paul Smith and his team to create an image that we feel is beautiful yet disquieting and saturated with generations of British identity and understanding.”
