When Laura told me what Penguin was doing in England (in England only, not fair) I was very excited. The next step in customizable everything is, of course, book covers. And I am, you may have noticed, a sucker for the customizable.
We thought Grimm's fairytale book was perfect for S & T's baby gift because they love fairytales and folklore, particularly from their respective countries. So a memorable fairy tale book seemed like the right fit for their baby, when she's a little older. I had to order it from Penguin UK as they don't sell it here, and M and I designed a screen print for it. The print has a whimsical, fairytale feel to it, but it's made up of icons that remind us of the couple – silos, plants, tools, espresso makers, cats and mushrooms (T.B. even gave them a little mushroom doll). We also gave them the screen, so that they can print the pattern on anything they want and the print become the baby's very own graphic.
