Kickstarter had just begun its "MAKE 100" initiative, so we thought this would be the perfect opportunity.
I created a custom font based on my own handwriting, composed it along with royalty-free shots of the Scottish Highlands & Islands (with credits on the back cover), then printed and manually sent over 30 of the books both domestic and internationally.
