Someone who inspires us:
We recently had the honor of designing this book about the inspiring life story of Sister Grace Miller, the founder of The House of Mercy in the heart of Rochester, NY. The book was authored by Hank Shaw, with a cover illustration by Sarah Keane. As Hank wrote about Sister Grace, "How many people would stop to help a homeless man in a blizzard? Or open up a round-the-clock shelter without any staff or public support? Or sleep on concrete to protest unjust evictions? Or spend a year and a half to bring a son’s ashes to his mother? Or run the risk of upsetting the authorities by refusing to turn a homeless mother and child away?" That's Amazing Grace. All proceeds from the sale of this book directly support the important work of The House of Mercy in helping the homeless of Rochester.

We're pleased with this collaboration:
We designed this book, Vintage Tweets: Suffrage Era Postcards, which tells the story of 19th and early 20th century women’s fight for the right to vote through a collection of over 400 vintage postcards. Carol Crossed, the book’s author, is president of the Susan B Anthony Birthplace in Adams MA. She owns a vast collection of vintage postcards (“tweets” from another time) for and against the suffrage cause, which are by turns artful, funny, sarcastic, ironic, informative, persuasive and charming…sometimes all of the above! The book was released in time for the opening of the National Women’s Suffrage Centennial August 26, 2019, which runs through 2020. The year celebrates the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granting women the right to vote. 2020 is also the 200th birthday of Susan B. Anthony, born February 15, 1820. All proceeds from the sale of the book directly benefit the Museum. Books may be purchased through the Museum's website.
