A Little About the 2011 30 Poets/30 Days Logo

When I go to children's book events, I find myself in absolute awe of illustrators. I mean, I look at their work and think "how can they DO that?" I find I'm the same way about logos and graphic design, too.

This year, I was lucky enough to have the talented Mary Peterson ride to my logo-rescue. And here, as you look at it, is a bit about it: she cut the design from a linoleum block and printed it on her letterpress. Yup, you read that right: her letterpress! I find that incredibly cool.

So, thanks, Mary! (And yet another thanks to my #kidlitchat cohort Bonnie Adamson who whipped me up last year's logos)

I was wondering how that was created - very sharp!
