Katie has made three custom colors of cotton papers that I will print on and use for the covers of the dos a do book. The bright red and the gray papers will be the two front covers and the middle color is for the shared back cover.

My book All Sorts  has been selected as a Gallery Choice award winner in the exhibit Pop-Up Now II, an international, juried exhibition of handmade pop-up and movable artists books at 23 Sandy Gallery, 623 NE 23rd Ave., Portland, OR. The Gallery Choice award was made by owner and artist Laura Russell. She says “As a graphic designer I find this book is not only an example of stellar design and color, but it is a well-researched and well-conceived work where each and every element from the structure, inspired by orange crates, to the double alphabet, counts. It is also flawlessly executed. Top notch quality.”
