Overview

I'm a visual designer with an eye for detail and heart for good. After a lifetime of admiring all things on paper, I studied Editorial Design with a Writing minor and went on to gain experience in print design from small magazines to large book publishers. Most of my professional experience took place at Chronicle Books, where I designed covers and interiors for all kinds of formats within art, lifestyle, travel, and creativity genres.

Eric Shiner

Strange, outdated laws from each of the 50 U.S. states—some overturned, some still on the books, and some merely the stuff of legends—are depicted with sly wit by Olivia Locher. Incisive, ironic, and gorgeous, these images will appeal to art buffs and trivia fans alike.

From the comedian behind the popular parenting blog The Ugly Volvo comes a refreshing spin on the baby milestone book. Instead of a place to lovingly capture the first time baby sleeps through the night, this book shows what it's like the first time baby rolls off the bed/sofa/changing table, leaving mom or dad in a state of pure terror (it happens).
