Tribute to Therese Broderick

DoublePage Spread

Therese sent me her illustrated chap book. Above is a photo showing the delicate color scheme of blues, greens and pinks water colored and penciled excellently by Alan Casline. There are violet end-pages included and lovely dedications, acknowledgments, and Benevolent Bird Press listings. The classic style and graciousness of the work fired my enthusiasm for chapbooks. does an excellent job of showcasing my book designs. But my dynamic “off the page” designs are so opposite this delicate style. And I had to say how softly it settles me, and makes me slow down to savor every word written. I read them when they were posted and they caught my breath then. But now I can carry them with me like a toddler carts a “lovey blanket” on every exploration, every new adventure.

Thank you, Therese.
