Pipistrello

This past year I worked on a fantastic private commission for a lovely couple looking to create a book for their young son. The story they wrote is entitled Pipistrello.... which is Italian for bat. It's a tale about Divvy, a tiny bat whose quest involves problem-solving, creativity, and traveling around the globe.

I'm so pleased with how the final printed book came out. It was great to help make the client's vision come to life - and to learn so many different words for "bat"!  I hope they enjoy their book for years to come.
