Picture book lettering

I was thrilled to recently have the chance to create some cover lettering for an upcoming picture book from Random House. The book is based on the true story of Alice Paul, who led the women's voting movement in the 1910s. AD Katrina Damkoehler (also a very dear former colleague from my days at Penguin!) always has fantastic design ideas and steered me in a clear stylistic direction that worked well with the time period as well as the lovely art by illustrator, Nancy Zhang. She also asked me to hand-letter headlines for faux "newspapers" on the endpapers.

This title will pub in the Fall (just in time for the election!), but is available for pre-order now. Love how this came out and all works together as a package. Thanks Katrina!
