Our intern Sydnee chose Policing The Black Man, edited byAngela J. Davis and designed by Oliver Munday, as her July Book Cover Crush.
This essay collection analyzes the ways the criminal justice system impacts the lives of African American boys and men at every stage of the criminal process. The art stuck out to me because I didn’t see what the cover image was depicting until the third or fourth time I looked at it.
For the first version of the cover, Munday says “I tried a typographic
direction, finding a common link in the ‘c’ of both words, which failed to
evoke true feeling in its effort to be clever.”
“Additional versions,” like the one below, “had illustrations which started to seem effective, but weren’t dire enough.The

Told in multiple POV’s, with each character cleverly utilized to show the whole progression of Mai and Naru’s complicated relationship in depth, despite it being a relatively short multi-chaptered fic. The writing is superb, almost poetic, and characterization is on exactly on-point. If you want to see Yasuhara unprepared for a slight miscalculation, Lin being an excellent wing-man, Bou-san doing some tough-love dad act, and Naru showing some heart-meltingly sweet-yet-still-canon-believable moments, then I would highly recommend this story!
I really want to support htgawm cos its cast is a gift to acting but it would be great if Pete nowalk stopped pulling random plot twists out his arsehole and instead returned to the succinct writing of season one, that’d be great
