art

december takes a great deal of pride in the artwork and artists we feature in every issue. With the oversight of our Art Editor Buzz Spector, we look for art that has some sort of relationship (however loosely defined) to language – all of the art we present relates somehow to words, books, language, or the literary arts. Featured below are some samples of work we’ve featured.  For more information about a particular artist, click on their names to visit their personal websites. Each volume is available for individual purchase here.
