The Winterhouse design studio, cofounded by William Drenttel and Jessica Helfand, known for its legacy of literary design, collaborated with Poetry magazine for 12 years, contributing to the rebirth of Poetry’s design and the first Poetry Foundation brand identity. Poetry by Winterhouse spans April 2005–June 2017, illustrating Winterhouse’s illumination of Poetry’s rich history, the expansion and evolution of the magazine’s visual style, and the progression toward the Foundation’s current Pentagram designs, led by Michael Bierut. The exhibition includes Poetry magazine covers and interiors, working papers, and ephemera.
