MAJOR book announcement!!! Lupita Nyong'o has inspired us in so very many ways, and now we can share that she’s written a children’s book that will inspire so many more. Not only will this book resonate deeply with all readers, it is also exceedingly needed. As @lupitanyongo herself says: "I hope it serves as an inspiration for everyone to walk with joy in your own skin." I am beyond excited to be art directing and designing it, and sharing in this experience with stellar editor @zareennycca.
Read the full announcement & details in the @nytimes article, which you can look up at the New York Times or type in this link:
More info to come!
This book is EXACTLY what we need in our world today, and I'm thrilled to share today's exclusive cover reveal of Tomie dePaola's exquisite upcoming picture book, Quiet.
The craft of book making is often rushed itself, so it has been a true pleasure for me to be able to take the time to craft this book, inspired beyond measure by watching how Tomie approached the story and art, developed it, and was able to put mindfulness into illustration. I feel like a Padawan learning from the Jedi Master. (Along with wonderful fellow Padawan, editor Emma Ledbetter.) Quiet comes out later this year, but until then, this cover reveal is a wonderful sneak peek! Today’s official cover reveal, with a most wonderful and meaningful post by @fusenumber8 , is on her blog: http://blogs.slj.com/afuse8production/2018/01/17/cover-reveal-quiet-by-tomie-depaola/
