Nau Sea Sea Sick

Nau Sea Sea Sick


Edited by Kay Rosen | From Four Corners Books

American artist Kay Rosen leads us offshore with her illustrations for this volume of the following stories, all about the sea: 

John Moore: Local Boy Makes Good | Katherine Mansfield: The Voyage | Stephen Crane: The Open Boat | Isabella Bird: The Hawaiian Archipelago, Letter I | John Aaron Rosen: Stranger In The Empty Night | Eileen Myles: Everyday Barf

Kay Rosen has been exploring the possibilities of words as images for over 25 years. She delights in the small shift; the subtle change that subverts meaning and reveals the unexpected.

Four Corners Books’ Familiars provide a fresh look at the tradition of the illustrated novel, with each artist choosing a text to be reprinted in full as part of a newly created work. Each book is different in style and format, according to the needs of the artwork and the text. The Familiars series was nominated for the Brit Insurance Design Awards 2011. The series designer is John Morgan.
