When I first talked with the artist Amy Wakingwolf, I knew this would be a great project. Amy is a serious artisan based in Hawaii who works with hand-sculpted glass to create beautiful necklaces and earrings.

This book is a showpiece catalog of her jewelry, specifically, "the honu collection", which features nine different turtle pendants crafted with 14 karat findings and 22 karat gold paired with hand-faceted precious and semi-precious gemstone.

Worth mentioning here is that Amy Wakingwolf is also a conservationist who gives generously to ocean recovery projects. Additionally, throughout the summer, Amy and her associates camp out on the beaches by sea turtle nests, making sure each hatchling makes it to the sea.

This book was created for our client, Allan Syphers. Mr. Syphers is a seasoned professional architect, and recently began delving into photography. Through discovery, chance or circumstance, Allan began to focus his work on images of reflection. Discovering with growning interest that reflection encompassed several concepts - specular, mathematical and contemplative.

This book is an exploration of reflection and the images were taken in such places as Tuscany, England and the Caribbean.

We recently worked with author, Paul Gustafson to design a cover for his recently released Kindle book, Healthy Hypnosis: The Simple Truth and Practical Use. We will be working again with Paul to design the hardcover version of his book, due for release later this summer.
Healthy Hypnosis offers a unique perspective into the common, everyday application of hypnosis. It takes what once seemed unimaginable and foreign and presents it in a way that just makes sense.

Author, Paul Gustafson guides readers through the A-B-C’s of hypnosis, seperates fact from fiction, and offers fascinating case studies and samples of some of the actual hypnosis sessions he uses with his clients. Healthy Hypnosis: The Simple Truth and Practical Use shines a bright light on this empowering technique, helping to educate readers on the amazing potential offered by this peaceful process.To order the Kindle version of this book, click here.

Costa Rica is a beautiful photography book we created for noted wildlife photographer, Jim Stamates. This book is a collection of Jim's favorite images taken during his numerous "In The Rhythm" eco-tours.

Recognized as a prominent wildlife photographer, Jim Stamates has been creating photographic images for more than 35 years. Since 1980, he has focused his talents on the photography and preservation of our natural surroundings.

For Jim, respect for wildlife takes precedence over “getting the shot”. His philosophy is rewarded by a unique intimacy with his subjects. Dedicated to the proper and ethical behavior toward nature, Jim champions his “low impact field techniques” through his In The Rhythm™ lectures and workshops that emphasize the well being of the subject.
