Where the Money Went

You can't go wrong with a laughing mermaid or a tv. Why have I never put the two together?

Not sure who designed this, but I'd love to know whether the mermaid/tv combo was a hard sell. Also, how does it relate to the book?

Kelly Blair: The Nightingales of Troy

A collection of short stories tracking four generations of women in Troy, NY. I love the simplicity of representing the women as diferent colors of the same clip-art. The book tracks the rise and decline of the town with some gritty characters, and perhaps that is what prompted the do-it-yourself look. Paperback coming in July from Norton, printed on Mohawk Via Felt paper. Thanks for the heads up, Albert!
