banned books

Winner, HOW Design Awards, Student Work 2019. This series was created in celebration of banned books week. These three titles- The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, The Wizard of Oz, and A Wrinkle in Time- were banned for their references to beautiful, mysterious, and dangerous magic. As such, I wanted the illustrations to be whimsical and sinuous. All three books involve an unexpected and magical journey with humble beginnings: a wardrobe, a tornado, and a conversation in a dining room. The silhouettes on the dust jackets can be removed to reveal more detailed illustrations underneath, to reflect the way that these books reveal that magic is just beyond the mundane, visible to people curious or brave enough to seek it out.
