I am a Connecticut youth services consultant and former graphic designer, though this blog is something I do outside of work. I started the blog after regularly reading The Book Design Review, which is no longer being updated, and wishing there was a blog about children’s / YA book jackets (and several have been started since).
My other major – and again, work-related – interest has been summer reading, particularly the high school variety. I wrote a couple of articles on the topic for VOYA and The ALAN Review several years ago (2002-) and continue to watch trends.
While I love getting blog awards and whatnot, I made a commitment to myself to keep the blog clean and uncluttered with side-stuff, and also to keep it on topic at all times. So I’ll say it here: Thanks for any blog kudos or tags, and thanks for your understanding of my self-imposed rules.
