UL Arts Office asked us to design and produce a hardback story book, using stories that were written by 6-12 year olds from three national schools in Limerick. They wanted a book that they might see in book stores and would be proud to have on their shelves. They loved the idea of it being like a 'Brothers Grimm' book.
What We Did
We were blown away by the imagination and creativity from the children. We worked with a very talented illustrator to create the old fairytale, slightly gothic style. We used some illustrations as full pages, and introduced random colour pages amongst the mostly monochrome pages. Spot varnish on the cover added texture. The result is a beautiful hardback story book that can be treasured and read for years to come.
