Late last year I began a project with my dad. Helping him publish his first book. Since his retirement, he'd been writing stacks and stacks of poetry. As a former english major, he was making up for a long time away from the craft. He was interested in self publishing a book so how could I pass up an opportunity to work on a project with my dad? We set about compiling and organizing his poetry into a collections and I created an illustration for each one. Trying to capture imagery from each poem that I hoped would connect with reader.
The diligent writer that he is, he's already started putting together his next two which are on their way and a fourth is in the works. If you're interested in seeing and reading the results of our collective labor, follow the link below and grab a copy.
