His Name Was Walter by Emily Rodda

Illustration and lettering

A cover with classic story book vibes for legendary Australian children's author, Emily Rodda. For this middle grade fantasy novel with fairy tale elements, we went all out and did endpapers, drop caps, custom chapter headings and numbers.

Winner of "Best Designed Children's Fiction Book" at the 2019 Australian Book Designer's Association Awards.
