Some months ago I illustrated and hand-lettered materials at Spur Design for the Maryland Humanities Council's One Maryland One Book program. Every year a book is chosen for state-wide reading and discussion, with materials distributed to schools and libraries, and the 2012 selection was The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway. It’s a story based on true events about a musician during the seige of Sarajevo who honors the memory of his friends and neighbors by playing his cello everyday in the square where they were killed, a day for each victim.

It was a thrill to work on this at Spur, and lovely to work with the hardworking people at MD Humanities. You can find out more about the One Maryland One Book program here. Art & design direction by David Plunkert and Joyce Hesselberth.
