Excited to share with you all another publication I've had the opportunity to design landing very soon! kieronlewis.com

So the last few months I’ve been working with publishers Chronicle Books, alongside authors Dr. Karida L. Brown and Charly Palmer to create a publication which was inspired by the groundbreaking work of W. E. B. Du Bois.

The New Brownies’ Book reimagines the very first publication created for African American children in 1920 as a must-have anthology for a new generation. Expanding on the mission of the original periodical to inspire the hearts and minds of Black children across the country, esteemed scholar Karida L. Brown and award-winning artist Charly Palmer have gathered the work of more than fifty contemporary Black artists and writers.

The result is a book bursting with essays, poems, photographs, paintings, and short stories reflecting on the joy and depth of the Black experience—an immersive treasure trove that reminds readers of all ages that Black is brilliant, beautiful, and bold.

I had the responsibility of designing the entire hardback publication (cover and interior). From a design perspective, having the design on screen doesn’t do justice. We have a solid case wrapping around the 200+ paged publication, with gold foiling as a print finish. Once the publication has landed, I’ll be sure to share my design process via kieronlewis.com

Until then, pre-order your copy today: rb.gy/93edo
