Born This Way
Rarely do I work on a project that makes me laugh and cry while I’m designing, and leaves me feeling completely inspired by humanity—actually that has never happened until Katie Hatz at Quirk Books hired me to work on Born this Way. Based on Paul Vitagliano’s blog by the same name, this book is a collection of wonderful, often very funny, stories and photographs that document growing up gay. One of my favorite things about the book is the range of generations that have contributed; the book starts in the late 40’s and goes into the late 90s. And having Barney Frank’s bar mitzvah picture (seen here) doesn’t hurt either!
