In following up the premier issue of The Diamond Line, the fall 2020 editorial staff had big shoes to fill. We took on the challenge of creating something that would uphold the framework of Issue 1 while simultaneously branching out from its margins.
Like the editors before us, we had a vision, but ours took a new form — bright, warm colors. Sunset colors. Moons. Playful lines. Isolation and introspection. A stroll through an art gallery. A coming-of-age story bound between two groovy orange bookends. While Issue 2 does not have an overarching theme, we chose the cover art, “Pandemic Prom” by Autumn Blaylock, because it beautifully encompassed the pages within and the vision we were working toward.
Blaylock, Autumn; Corn, Emily; Drouse, Heather; Hutchinson, Claire; Lusk, Elise; Carter, Alexis Jamilee; Dial, Lauren; Haymore, Toby James; Jennings, Caroline; Kirk, Heidi; Mann, Brittaney; Olivo, Anna Karen; West, Hadley; Novotny, Tabitha; and Price, Lexie
