Niwot, Colorado

This was a trade hardback children's nature book. I was initially contracted as the illustrator, but because the spacial design for the text areas affected the full spread illustrations so much, I requested to be allowed to design the book as well, and was subsequently contracted for that as well. This gave me total artistic control of how the book would look. I did all the typesetting, color specifying, and designed the wrap around dust jacket and all internal pages. To view the internal illustrations please see the illustration pages.
