The Literacy Review is a book published by NYU Gallatin comprised of texts written by adults in literacy programs across the 5 boroughs. The book is used as a teaching device in these same programs.
I wanted this edition (I previously worked on LR 10) to really be about the people who make the writing and are working to become literate in English, so I focused on the physical journeys made by the writers to get where they are now, journeys which many of the writers document in their classes and comprise their personal narratives. I made maps of each of the program sites and used those throughout the book - the cover, the section breaks, and the corners with the page numbers. On the cover, underneath the map of the upper left corner of Prospect Park where there are a couple of sites, I placed cutouts of antique/vintage maps of all the countries where the writers come from to show the kind of confluence of cultures occurring in these programs and how each of the writers embodies multiple worlds of language and culture within themselves.
