Nancy Barnes, book designer and managing editor of Stories To Tell, hosts Chicago-based digital artist Nancy Gershman on the Stories To Tell Books Podcast. The interview is also available through iTunes at http://itunes.apple.com/
“The world of books is changing rapidly, and for the better,” says Barnes. “New printing technologies make it relatively inexpensive to include beautiful photos and illustrations throughout a book, in addition to the cover art.”
Her conversation with Gershman will explore how self-publishing authors can distill a legacy into iconic moments to illustrate a book’s deeper meaning. Samples of Gershman’s custom digital photomontages can be viewed on her website http://www.artforyoursake.com.
Barnes and Gershman explore how ancestor dreamscapes allow authors to blend visual symbolic elements to enhance and deepen the emotional tone of their books. “Think of me as your private mythologist, creating legends from your personal photos - and even from memories and stories when no such photos exist!” says Gershman. This conversation will transform the way you think about illustrated books.
