OUTCOME
After commissioning the Norwegian painter Berg Norcross to provide the illustrations for my book Monkfish Maggie and the Bungalow Stairs, I was approached by Berg’s people to edit, format and art direct his children’s book Berg’s Book of Colours. My role in the team was to oversee creative direction, page design and to edit the content of the book before formatting it for ebook.

The end result was a beautifully illustrated educational shape book filled to the brim with Berg’s paintings. Whether a child is at pre-school, primary, play group, home or on holiday, Berg's Book of Colours will keep them occupied and teach them more colours than they can cram into a kaleidoscope.

Berg’s Book of Shapes is available from Amazon or any good eBook store.
