Brian Wonders:  The Making of a Children's Book

The Making of a Picture Book: journal entry 27

COVER STORY:


In case you missed it -- Brian Wonders is on the cover of The Binding Edge!  The article shines a light on the custom slipcovers for our storybooks, created by Silvanus Products in Missouri.  It was their collaboration, along with our printer in Minnesota and our binder in Nebraska, that took our slipcover concept from prototype to finish.  I am thrilled to see them featured on the cover of The Binding Edge.  

Below is an excerpt and links to the full article, by Jen Clark.
