Superstitions of the Mid-Atlantic by Margaret Ray

Edition: 500 copies of the winning books were printed by the Prolific Group and designed by Gabriele Wilson, with covers by Jessica Nielsen.


When I first encountered Superstitions of the Mid-Atlantic by Margaret Ray, I was taken with its preoccupation with the natural world, a preoccupation that challenges what is or is not natural by juxtaposing what we know of the environment with what we know but dare not say.

—Jericho Brown
