|Because, Why Not Write? cover design and art in progress.|
It was exciting to work with the young authors and to explore the many possibilities for the design of their books. Because, Why Not Write? is a non-fiction book written by Cameron Jury. There is a great article in a local publication here, that gives more details about the program and her process. The Presumpscot Baptism of a Jewish Girl is a poetry book by Lizzy Lemieux. I especially love the antique cover art she chose from the New York Public Library's digital image collection. It is such a fantastic resource!
|The final products! All four YEA books are in the wagon.|
I look forward to working with more young authors in the future! Being at the Telling Room has been a great experience both socially and creatively.
