How many 8 years olds get to say that they were on the cover of a book? One day, his kids will look at this book and say, "Hey, that's my Dad!" I have to say Thank You to Becky for not only asking me to contribute to this endeavor, but for choosing my boy to grace her cover. I'm sure it was an artistic decision, and for some reason, my layout fit what she needed for her cover; but she could have chosen any one of the gorgeous works of art from inside...and it just turned out to be mine. I sure am proud.
I cannot wait to sit down and relax with this book. I took a minute to browse through it, and I have to tell you that the art in this book is fabulous. In addition to Becky and myself, the other contributors were: Marla Kress, Mindy Bush, Tiffany Tillman, and Judi VanValkinburgh. There were also several Friends of PageMaps whose work appear: Shawna Martinez, Dawn Inskip, Kim Kesti, Sheredian Vickers, Vicki Harvey, Patti Milazzo, Becky Heisler, Connie Petertonjes, and Amy Goldstein. You certainly cannot dispute the talent of all of these women!
And one more thing...I can assure you that you will not only enjoy the layouts in the PageMaps book, but you will love reading what Becky has wrote about each of them. She is funny and entertaining. This is NOT your ordinary idea book, for sure! You NEED to get this book...you will NOT be disappointed!
