An Alphabet Picture book with photos of the city...

Our idea for the book collaboration was born during a brainstorming session at a cafe in downtown Saint Joseph, Michigan. Our goal was both to showcase our beautiful city as well as create a book that we would want to share with our kids. The partnership was perfect; Lisa generated thoughtful and stimulating page layouts while Nicolina captured the treasures in St. Joseph through her lens.

The concept is a picture/coffee table book with an interactive element. The photographs are taken in the St. Joseph area with a description of the place or event. The map gives the reader a self guided tour of the area. It is a unique way to Discover St. Joe!
