It was truly an honor to work on this project. Barb Waite was a referral from Sable Creek Press, and I’m so happy that she allowed me to work with her on this project. Because of the wealth of material and research that Barb had put into compiling this book from her grandmother’s letters, diary, and photos, there was plenty of material to use to create a very personal cover for this amazing biography and true love story. I’m not particularly fond of collages, but this book lended itself to one, and I used an antique style label to subtlety infer the era. I originally used Elsie’s actual signature for the title, but the author wished it to be a prettier script, so I attempted to use a script that still looked like a signature. The author has commented that the cover has received many compliments and that she intends for me to design the sequel.
I designed both print and ebook formats for Elsie, Adventures of an Arizona Schoolteacher.
