The Readers

I love books, and I love reading. This print started out as an extension of the sketches I have been doing of worms, and then I converted them into hands and books while working on a logo for my friends’ bookstore Human Relations in Brooklyn.

Another variation of this design is included in a Justseeds Collaborative portfolio about education, Liberating Learning.
