I designed a book! I finally got a copy of the finished product in my hot little hands last weekend and I'm so excited to see how it turned out. Friend and fellow NE Minneapolis artist Sarah Whiting received a MN State Arts Boards grant this year to publish a book of her collection of photos and interviews of Northeast Minneapolis artists and studios. She asked me to the do the graphic design for the project and it was a real treat to work with such gorgeous photos on such an amazing project. We kept the layout super clean to showcase the photos but with some special little touches to keep it current and fun. The book is called Open Studio: Faces and Stories of Northeast Minneapolis Artists. Printed by Bolger Printing, it has a library of congress number, ISBN number and everything—it's the real deal. Hopefully I'll have a few copies on hand to sell at my holiday open house on December 4.
