Highlighting the current move towards hand-made design (and the incredible work of so many stellar firms/individuals) the nice folks at Rockport Publishers took the plunge with me once again via “Dirty Fingernails: A One-Of-A-Kind Collection of Graphics Uniquely Designed By Hand.” Despite having lived with these images for months on end, I can not lie – they still take my breath away! Complimented by my informative writing style, the assembled serves as an informative/inspirational touchstone for an important time in the history of design (if I do say so myself – and I do!) You have to get one in your hands to see the splattered joys of the spot varnish, so get down to your local book behemoth or start your wait at the door for the UPS guy and those sexy legs.

I sometimes labor over solutions, agonizing my way through every minor detail and burying myself in research until I find an idea that suits me – and then I usually need to come up with at least two more! This isn’t one of those moments. In capturing the essence of this program, pairing emerging writers with the area’s most creative musicians, I knew what to do immediately. Sometimes the obvious (to me at least) solution is the best. The key is in how you execute it. Finding the perfect book, I still managed to agonize over photographing it at just the right angle – haha.
