Smart Set wins MIPA Award!

We’re pleased to announce that Smart Set was the winner of Best Cover Design at the Midwest Independent Publisher’s Association’s 2019 Book Awards! Our design was for the cover of Cosmic Trip, Rock Concerts at the Minneapolis Labor Temple, 1969-1970. Working with author and former MIA curator¬†Christian Peterson and poster artist Juryj (George) Ostroushko, Smart Set scanned and retouched all the images, created new digital reworks of select concert posters, designed and typeset, printed and published this limited edition coffee table book. Cosmic Trip chronicles every concert performed at the Minneapolis Labor Temple through stories, contemporaneous reviews and the actual poster art for each show.
