I would like to meet Leanne Shapton in real life and ask her a thing or two...How does she make the simplest text and images look so beautiful and lively? I love the way she can take everyday objects and simplify them just to the basic outline and color. She is a rockstar who is featured in the New York Times and does dozen of other collaborations including book covers. I would love to see her illustrations in the Seattle Times some day. It would simply brighten my day at first glance!
