effortlessly, blending AIDS activism, witchcraft,
religious extremism and romance.


Cover of "The Blind Photographer" featuring images by Tanvir Bush and others, by Julian Rothenstein, introduced by Candia McWilliam and published by Redstone Press. The cover has three horizontal panels in blue, white and red, respectively, and a thin vertical column of yellow and black stripes at the leftmost edge. The white middle panel is the largest and contains a stylised image of a camera lens containing the image of a smiling black man. Above the lens is a text in braille.

Cover of "Willesden Herald: New Short Stories 10" featuring Rictus by Tanvir Bush, ed by Lane Ashfeldt and Stephen Moran, and published by Pretend Genius. The book's cover image appears to be a road surface in muted burgundy and charcoal colours, traversed vertically by a clumsily painted yellow line. Two yellow manhole covers appear like blobs of paint to the right of the line. At the top left in a serif font are the title Willesden Herald in yellow, followed by the subtitle New Short Stories 10 in white.
