May 2020. Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo.
· · ·
I maaay have totally neglected to read a book all month until last week, so I decided to do an easy read and one of my favorites as a kid. Reading it as an adult (in one day may I add) was just as enjoyable as I remember it being 14 years ago. I also am trying to vary my solutions, and as last month I used illustration, this month I went with cut paper collage. Opal is cut out of a dreamy blue watercoloring that reminded me of positivity and childlike joy, while Winn-Dixie is cut out of palm trees that illustrates the Florida backdrop of the story. The composition and typography I kept simple and uncluttered with the young audience in mind.
Type set in Embury Text by Victoria Rushton.
