Illustration Art Video For Our Next Book

Great news! Our hardback proof of The Shoebox arrived on Wednesday, and it looks really good! So that was the final print proof. No more changes! And a hardback book? What could be better?!? CluckŸ-BuckŸ!

The video is completely in black-and-white because all of the illustrations are also. We didn’t want to give the impression that anything will be in color, so even the title slide is in black-and-white. (The book jacket does have color.)

We really hope you will enjoy the video!

hardback with matte jacket, paperback with matte cover, 6” x 9,” 50 lb. white paper, 270 pages, 27 chapters with a full-page black-and-white illustration for each chapter

September 30th is the official publication date. Why not sign up for our weekly newsletter for more exciting news?!?

Thanks so much for reading—and watching!

John, Gracie, Bessie, Blanche, Pearl, Emily, and Amelia

One final note…Gracie is doing okay. She has her good days and her not-so-good days. That is, there are some days she relies on me more than on other days.

She and I are working together to get as much of her life down in notebooks while we can, but that does limit how much time we can spend on WordPress and social media.

We really appreciate those of you who have stuck with us even though we are not the best WordPress community members.
