I was responsible for a variety of books and this was one of them. Among my art direction responsibilities were coordination of deliverables from the writer and the illustrator. Preparation of the final artwork to the specifications required by the printer challenged me both as a design and art director. The book is 196 pages and the inside is printed in one Pantone color.
