Gibson’s Bookstore Mural Concord, NH


This was an incredibly fun project to imagine and make come to life. I am a passionate collector and admirer of children’s book writing and illustration so in this setting I was allowed to pay homage to many literary “cool” cats.

I’d like to extend my thanks to Michael Herrmann owner of Gibson’s Bookstore for trusting me with his new walls; Kate Whouley of Books In Common the designer who suggested that I submit a proposal, and Anne Sweeney who took many of the great photos of this project shown on this page. Additionally I’d like to thank Joanne Piazzi and Sue Richardson who were invaluable assistants allowing me to finish happily a little earlier then scheduled.

Please see links to many of these people’s work on my friendly links page. To see more detailed information about the inspiration for the project click on the individual walls below.
