Dark Pool Party

Design for Dark Pool Party, Hannah Black’s rst published work, a collection of essays, personal texts, and scripts. Her work reassembles autobiographical fragments to think about the relationship between bodies, labor, and a ect. Drawing on feminist, communist, and black radical theory she explores sex, ambivalence, departures, history, and violence with characteristic wit and precision.

The design strives to draw attention to the ideas about labor and its e ects as expressed in the writing. A faux imprint is created by lightly mirroring all right- page content onto the left page. The front cover is blind embossed, and the back cover is reverse printed at 100% black, furthering the idea of the imprint as the books are stacked on top of one another.
