Just a quick hello from a brand new Hesperette! Although, my first few weeks here have been mostly taken up trying to get to grips with life in a new office, the time has now arrived to take on the rather daunting task of writing something for the blog.
The recent batch included our new ‘On’ series which I have currently piled up on my desk so that I can admire the effect of the series design. I love the combination of dark front covers with the edible-coloured pastels of the back – sorry that sounds rather strange, suspect I might be hungry.
Each of the books is a collection of a writer’s thoughts on a specific subject. Being new at Hesperus, I am still delighted to discover alternative facets to well-known writers and, for me, the ‘On’ series epitomises this process. I love the idea that I am getting to know Virginia Woolf or John Donne in a different and novel way.
Anyway, having broken the ice and, to some extent, introduced myself, I shall sign off.
P.S Apologies for the rather bizarre layout, I’m still coming to terms with the artistic side of blogging…
