Let's Talk Illustrators #287: Caitlin Dale Nicholson

Earlier this month Caitlin Dale Nicholson published Ninitohtênân / We Listen,  translated by Leona Morin-Neilso and the third book in her Nôhkom series. Ninitohtênân / We Listen is the follow-up to niwîcihâw / I Help (2008) and Nipêhon / I Wait (2017), and getting a chance to talk to Caitlin about the full series––which is almost two decades in the making––was an honor. Enjoy our conversation!

Down to the Last Detail: The Shadow and the Ghost

I already showed off the case cover/dust jacket combo earlier this week, but it's absolutely worth showing off the endpaper/copyright combo for this book, too! I'm telling you, design teams are stepping up their copyright game, and I am loving it!
