New Project: “Scribble Pegasus” on Poetry Magazine’s Cover

Oded Ezer’s “Scribble Pegasus” on Poetry Magazine’s Cover

Founded in Chicago by Harriet Monroe in 1912, Poetry is the oldest monthly devoted to verse in the English-speaking world. The magazine established its reputation early by publishing the first important poems of T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Marianne Moore, Wallace Stevens, H.D., William Carlos Williams, Carl Sandburg, and other now-classic authors.

To celebrate its 100th anniversary, Poetry’s designers, Winterhouse Studio, invited 11 artists and designers, including Oded Ezer, to reinterpret its iconic Pegasus logo, originally created by Eric Gill in 1932.

Ezer’s Scribble Pegasus appears on the cover of the magazine’s September 2012 edition. Other designers invited to reinterpret the symbol this year include Michael Bierut, Marian Bantjes, Milton Glaser and more.
