This September, the New Press will reissue Will the Circle Be Unbroken? by Studs Terkel. The book, one of thirteen oral histories by the Chicago Pulitzer Prize winner, takes on death, a universal experience that solicits plenty of speculation, caution, and emotion from his 60-plus interviewees. This will be the latest cover that C STUDIO DESIGN has recreated, beginning in 2004 with Hope Dies Last when the New Press began reissuing this award-winning series in a newly designed format. The look and feel of this redesigned series conveys the rough-hewn, DIY sensibility of these oral histories. A hand-cut, distinctly unpolished typeface delivers Terkel’s book titles in a soft-spoken, grassroots manner. Iconic images, shot simply and rendered in half tones of two or three colors, portray a humble, yet dignified America.
